PSY370: Thinking and Reasoning LEC 10 Creativity & How we Learn Nov, 19th, 2009 How do neuronetworks learn? parallel process the weight of connections are altered as we learn this is done through back propagation of error target value performance value = error learning algorithm use statistical contribution of each connection to assign blame for the error then the weight of connection is altered slightly to the degree to which it had blame, you do not turn it all off, because the blame calculation is very probabilistic this is back propagation of error, and we do this many times until the network is able to do the task well but this theory requires the ability to independently learn, because it is presupposing the thing it is trying to explain presumption that we know the target value How do we get unsupervised learning? Gefford Hinton: Internalization Terms used below are not from Hinto but from Vervaeke network break down into 2 parts letter for parts, number for stages A B 1 [Wake] weak reinforcement of world, WORLD because it does not know how big the sample is for the population 2 (a) Bs sample act as As B will provide back propagation [Sleep] Population. for A, because it has the target value of what the world is in As eyes 2 (b) A is really good at solving the problem, and it teaches B how to model now. 1 Go back to stage 1 now, the loop occurs again, indefinitely until B has a good model of the world but the criticism might be that the machine will never truly achieve a real representation of the world but really just a good model bad criticism bc humans dont have that either (we are not God, and its unfair to ask the machine to be one) Ito et. al cerebellum is structurally dense
