Biologically-Plausible Spiking Neural Networks For Object Recognition

Primates are so fast and accurate in understanding the surrounding visual world. Their visual cortex lets them do invariant object recognition in just 100-150ms [1]. Some scientists believe that this rapid process leaves no room for time-consuming neural computations, such as detecting firing rates or the intervention of feedback signals. Instead, they suggest that the
