Biologically inspired feature creation for multi-sensory perception

Rohrer, Brandon R.

Automatic feature creation is a powerful tool for identifying and reaching goals in the natural world. This paper describes in detail a biologically-inspired method of feature creation that can be applied to sensory information of any modality. The algorithm is incremental and on-line; it enforces sparseness in the features it creates; and it can form features from other features, making a hierarchical feature set. Here it demonstrates the creation of both visual and auditory features. © 2011 The authors and IOS Press. All rights reserved.
