A Connectome Based Hexagonal Lattice Convolutional Network Model of the Drosophila Visual System
What can we learn from a connectome? We constructed a simplified model of thefirst two stages of the fly visual system, the lamina and medulla. Theresulting hexagonal lattice convolutional network was trained usingbackpropagation through time to perform object tracking in natural scenevideos. Ne…
