Abstract:

This three-year project partially supported three week-long international scientific meetings and courses on neural network research, 4 research books, more than 100 research articles, 68 Boston-area colloquia, 10 completed PhD theses, and the training of more than 20 graduate students. The research spanned a coordinated program of experimental and modeling studies of how the brain autonomously carries out intelligent behaviors in real-time in response to changing environmental contingencies. Neural models of 3-D vision and figure-around separation, motion perception, visual search, speech perception, working memories for storage of temporal sequences, supervised and unsupervised learning of recognition categories and predictions in response to nonstationary data, arm movement control, and quadruped gait transitions were developed. Technology transfers were made to processing of artificial sensor data, automatic target recognition, several industrial applications, and the control of mobile robots.
