DEEP NEUROETHOLOGY OF A VIRTUAL RODENT

Comments

Can a neuroscientist understand a virtual rodent? Authors took a realistic 3D animal, trained deep RL to control it during tasks, and then used neuroscience techniques to peak inside this animal...

sorry how could I forget to include this video of the wacky virtual rodent playing around https://t.co/BYUSdptDR8

I would actually like to see a 302-neuron version of this (I can't find out how many units are in this architecture, but I assume fewer). Could a neuroscientist understand a 302-neuron artificial C. elegans?

Happy to share this work! We built a model of a rodent, trained it to solve four tasks, and used methods common in neuroscience to study how the rodent controls its body. https://arxiv.org/abs/1911.09451 @Jessedmarshall, Josh Merel, Yuval Tassa, Greg Wayne and @BOlveczky

Anyone designed a radio using deep RL yet?

We are probably months from robopsychology as a field. I'm not really sure if it's "months until" or "months since", to be quite honest.

This looks a lot like a better-funded version of Bamzooki 🤔

Yet another way to explore ties between #MachineLearning, #DeepLearning, and Neuroscience! Check out a virtual rodent perform motor tasks with corresponding non-biological neural activity 🧠 Paper from @DiegoAldarondo @jessedmarshall @BOlveczky & more: https://arxiv.org/pdf/1911.09451.pdf https://t.co/iw3uoqyd37
