Faculty

Maneesh Sahani

 

Maneesh Sahani

Director of the GCNU & Professor of Theoretical Neuroscience and Machine Learning

[email protected]

Research Interests

My research spans work in both single-neuron and population-level neural data modelling, inferential theories of perception and learning in the brain, and related areas of machine learning.

Peter Latham

Professor of Theoretical Neuroscience

Research Interests

My research focuses on understanding how biologically realistic networks carry out computations. More specifically, my goal is to understand how connectivity and single neuron properties determine the ability of a network to perform computations, and how synaptic learning rules, single neuron properties, and patterns of input determine connectivity.

Research Interests

 A key component of Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems is the capacity to reason about distributions of real-world objects such as images, text, or high-dimensional sequences. My research addresses two core aspects of this goal: the ability to learn structured models that generate faithful samples of such real-world entities, and the ability to reason about and test properties of high-dimensional naturalistic distributions.

Peter Orbanz

Associate Professor of Machine Learning

Research interests

I study network and relational data, Bayesian nonparametrics, and exchangeability and symmetry properties. More generally, I am interested in all mathematical aspects of machine learning and pattern recognition.

Publications

Ferenc

Ferenc Huszar

Part-time Honorary Lecturer

 

Research Interests

I study and develop principles for learning from data, with a particular focus on deep/overparametrized models. I’m interested in representation learning, generalization, optimization and probabilistic foundations.
