A Theoretical Framework for Inference Learning

1 code implementation1 Jun 2022 Nick Alonso, Beren Millidge, Jeff Krichmar, Emre Neftci

Our novel implementation considerably improves the stability of IL across learning rates, which is consistent with our theory, as a key property of implicit SGD is its stability.

no code implementations20 Feb 2021 Sourav Dutta, Georgios Detorakis, Abhishek Khanna, Benjamin Grisafe, Emre Neftci, Suman Datta

We experimentally show that the inherent stochastic switching of the selector element between the insulator and metallic state introduces a multiplicative stochastic noise within the synapses of NSM that samples the conductance states of the FeFET, both during learning and inference.

Domain Adaptation In Reinforcement Learning Via Latent Unified State Representation

1 code implementation10 Feb 2021 Jinwei Xing, Takashi Nagata, Kexin Chen, Xinyun Zou, Emre Neftci, Jeffrey L. Krichmar

To address this issue, we propose a two-stage RL agent that first learns a latent unified state representation (LUSR) which is consistent across multiple domains in the first stage, and then do RL training in one source domain based on LUSR in the second stage.
