Open-ended questions are a favored tool among instructors for assessing student understanding and encouraging critical exploration of course material.
Since they became observable, neuron morphologies have been informally compared with biological trees but they are studied by distinct communities, neuroscientists, and ecologists.
Deep neural networks implement a sequence of layer-by-layer operations that are each relatively easy to understand, but the resulting overall computation is generally difficult to understand.

We conjecture that certain sequences of tasks are not retrospectively learnable (in which the data distribution is fixed), but are prospectively learnable (in which distributions may be dynamic), suggesting that prospective learning is more difficult in kind than retrospective learning.
A popular theory of perceptual processing holds that the brain learns both a generative model of the world and a paired recognition model using variational Bayesian inference.
The output of a neural network depends on its parameters in a highly nonlinear way, and it is widely assumed that a network's parameters cannot be identified from its outputs.
Over the last decade, computer science has made progress towards extracting body pose from single camera photographs or videos.

Climate change is one of the greatest challenges facing humanity, and we, as machine learning experts, may wonder how we can help.
Over the last several years, the use of machine learning (ML) in neuroscience has been rapidly increasing.
Despite rapid advances in machine learning tools, the majority of neural decoding approaches still use traditional methods.
Classical approaches discover such structure by learning a basis that can efficiently express the collection.
Current high-resolution imaging techniques require an intact sample that preserves spatial relationships.

We propose a neural connectomics strategy called Fluorescent In-Situ Sequencing of Barcoded Individual Neuronal Connections (FISSEQ-BOINC), leveraging fluorescent in situ nucleic acid sequencing in fixed tissue (FISSEQ).

Simultaneously measuring the activities of all neurons in a mammalian brain at millisecond resolution is a challenge beyond the limits of existing techniques in neuroscience.
