The Cognitive and Computational Neuroscience of Categorization, Novelty-Detec... Google Tech Talks November, 15 2007 ABSTRACT Neurocomputational models provide fundamental insights towards understanding the human brain circuits for learning new associations and organizing our world into appropriate categories. In this talk I will review the information-processing functions of four interacting brain systems for learning and categorization: (1) the basal ganglia which incrementally adjusts choice behaviors using environmental feedback about the consequences of our actions, (2) the hippocampus which supports learning in other brain regions through the creation of new stimulus representations (and, hence, new similarity relationships) that reflect important statistical regularities in the environment, (3) the medial septum which works in a feedback-loop with the hippocampus, using novelty-detection to alter the rate at which stimulus representations are updated through experience, (4) the frontal lobes which provide for selective attention and executive control of learning and memory. The computational models to be described have been evaluated through a variety of empirical methodoligies including human functional brain imaging, studies of patients with localized brain damage due to injury or early-stage neurodegenerative diseases, behavioral genetic studies of naturally-occuring individual variability, as well as comparative lesion and genetic studies with rodents. Our applications of these models to engineering and computer science including automated ...

Dismantling the "Axis of Evil": Reforming Middle Eastern Representations in Hollywood (part1) This is part one of a program presented by the Iranian American Bar Association and Levantine Cultural Center in Los Angeles. Introduced by Ashley Tabbador and Jordan Elgrably, "Dismantlng the Axis of Evil" includes a brief review of roles in film and television, followed by a spirited discussion, and questions from the audience. Panelists include Ahmed Ahmed, comedian and actor, Reza Aslan, author of "No god, but God" and "How to Win a Cosmic War"; John Tehranian, attorney and author of "Whitewashed: America's Invisible Middle Eastern Minority"; Maz Jobrani, actor and comedian ("Brown & Friendly Comedy Tour", "Axis of Evil Comedy Tour"; "The Interpreter"); and Shiva Rose, actress ("David & Layla," "CSI Miami"), activist and playwright. In an event held at the beginning of this year entitled Arabs and Muslims in Hollywood, Levantine Cultural Center along with the Muslim Public Affairs Council and the Screen Actors Guild, brought together a star-studded panel of actors and directors to examine the portrait of Middle Easterners in Hollywood and the themes of terrorism and religious extremism that often follow. Participants included casting director April Webster ("Lost," "Criminal Minds," "24"), Oscar-nominee and Emmy-winner Shohreh Aghdashloo, Omar Metwally ("Munich"), Raya Meddine ("Bosta," "The Young and the Restless") and Maz Jobrani ("The Interpreter", "Homebody Kabul"). This is a follow-up discussion and a "how to guide" on eliminating negative ...

Class Dismissed: How TV Frames the Working Class Narrated by Ed Asner Based on the forthcoming book by Pepi Leistyna, Class Dismissed navigates the steady stream of narrow working class representations from American television's beginnings to today's sitcoms, reality shows, police dramas, and daytime talk shows. Featuring interviews with media ***ysts and cultural historians, this documentary examines the patterns inherent in TV's disturbing depictions of working class people as either clowns or social deviants -- stereotypical portrayals that reinforce the myth of meritocracy. Class Dismissed breaks important new ground in exploring the ways in which race, gender, and ***uality intersect with class, offering a more complex reading of television's often one-dimensional representations. The video also links television portrayals to negative cultural attitudes and public policies that directly affect the lives of working class people. Featuring interviews with Stanley Aronowitz, (City University of New York); Nickel and Dimed author, Barbara Ehrenreich; Herman Gray (University of California-Santa Cruz); Robin Kelley (Columbia University); Pepi Leistyna (University of Massachusetts-Boston) and Michael Zweig (State University of New York-Stony Brook). Also with Arlene Davila, Susan Douglas, Bambi Haggins, Lisa Henderson, and Andrea Press.
Sensorimotor primitives for learning object representations by manipulation using Armar III The exploration and learning of new objects is an essential capability of a cognitive robot. In this work we focus on making use of the robots manipulation capabilities to learn complete object representations suitable for 3-D object recognition. Taking control of the object allows the robot to focus on relevant parts of the object. We propose a systematic method to control a robot in order to achieve a maximum range of motion across the 3-D view sphere. This is done by exploiting the task redundancies typically found on a humanoid arm and by avoiding joint limits and self-collisions of the robot. The proposed method enables us to acquire a wider range of snapshots without regrasping the object.

The Poeticon: languages of sensorimotor representations and Google Tech Talks May, 21 2008 ABSTRACT Reproducing an act with sensorimotor means and using fine natural language for communicating the intentionality behind the act is what Aristotle called "Poetics". POETICON explores the "poetics of everyday life", ie the synthesis of sensorimotor representations and natural language in everyday human interaction. This is related to an old problem in Artificial Intelligence on how meaning emerges, which is approached here in a new way. POETICON follows an empirical approach for discovering the "languages" of sensorimotor representations and the correspondences with natural language; guided by experiments in psychology and neuroscience, it employs cutting-edge equipment and established cognitive protocols for collecting face and body movement measurements, visual object information and associated linguistic descriptions from interacting human subjects, with a two-fold objective: a) The creation of the PRAXICON, an extensible computational resource which associates symbolic representations (words/concepts) with corresponding sensorimotor representations and that is enriched with information on patterns among these representations for forming conceptual structures. b) The exploration of the association of symbolic and sensorimotor representations through cognitive and neurophysiological experiments and experimentation with a humanoid as driving forces and implementation tools for the development of the PRAXICON, respectively. POETICON ...

Torture & American Culture-An Inquiry and Reflection: Popular Culture, Graphic Representations of Torture & Violence The photographs that revealed the torture and abuse of Iraqi prisoners at Abu Ghraib shocked the world. American military personnel and civilian contractors are seen engaged in practices prohibited by the Geneva Conventions, the Army Field Manual, and US and international law. Further revelations about CIA rendition policies, deaths in custody, Guantanamo detainees, and government secrecy raise critical questions about US culture and the practices and conditions that have fostered the resort to torture. This forum will examine two issues 1. What in US culture predisposes us to torture or to a tolerance for torture? 2. What strengths and weaknesses have US leadership groups (political, military, religious, medical, psychological, legal, etc.) exhibited in responding to the current controversies over torture?

Robert Fisk on false representation of Hezbollah Robert Fisk decries US media's failure to report the truth about Hezbollah and the conflict in Lebanon. I wrote a related ICH article on the subject during the conflict. "Free in Our Time" (Excepts below ) "What is happening in Lebanon will change ( by example ) a variety of things on this planet that people accept as fact. The fundamental reason for this is that when Hassan Nasrallah says he cares about the Lebanese people, he means it. Not that anyone in this country would know that of course, since mainstream media hasn't played more than thirty seconds of any of his statements followed by the "white man's overview", but if you had the opportunity to actually hear him you would surely know differently. This makes him unique as a leader since there are very few leaders ( certainly not ours ) that actually care for the people they are supposed to serve and protect. We should all be very well aware by now that leaders on this planet aren't elected, they are "installed" and are there to support the desires of the Global Corporation at the expense of the individual. One glaring example of this was Hezbollah's immediate response to the cease fire. Engineers and doctors were immediately dispatched, and registry centers were set up all over the south for people in need of aid. The response was so swift that European aid agencies that went in after the cease fire couldn't find people that had not already been visited by Hezbollah. The aid workers ...

Jeff Hawkins - Hierarchical Temporal Memory How a Theory of the Neocortex May Lead to Truly Intelligent Machines Jeff Hawkins (Numenta founder) presents as part of the UBC Department of Computer Science's Distinguished Lecture Series, March 18, 2010. Coaxing computers to perform basic acts of perception and robotics, let alone high-level thought, has been difficult. No existing computer can recognize pictures, understand language, or navigate through a cluttered room with anywhere near the facility of a child. Hawkins and his colleagues have developed a model of how the neocortex performs these and other tasks. The theory, called Hierarchical Temporal Memory, explains how the hierarchical structure of the neocortex builds a model of its world and uses this model for inference and prediction. To turn this theory into a useful technology, Hawkins has created a company called Numenta. In this talk Hawkins will describe the theory, its biological basis, and progress in applying Hierarchical Temporal Memory to machine learning problems. Part of this theory was described in Hawkins' 2004 book, On Intelligence. Further information can be found at

Within that accepted and allowed separation, weve separated-ourselves into and as Manifested System-Representations of-Ourselves that function/exist For-us = until we return to ourselves so-to-speak within the realisation and standing of and as Equality and Oneness. For example: The System-Representation of and as HERE was created and manifested as the Physical. The System-Representation of and as ACTUAL-BREATH was created and manifested as the Physical-Breath. The System-Representation of and as PRESENCE was created and manifested as Consciousness. The System-Representation of and as OURSELVES was created and manifested as the Mind Consciousness System. linbk to text steni.co.za steni.co.za desteni desteniproductions sunettespies estenidewet andrearossouw bernardpoolman for equality as a human right

Polar Representations of Quaternions The polar representation of quaternions is identical to what happens for complex numbers except the imaginary i gets replaced by an imaginary 3-vector, i, j, and k. To get to an event from the origin requires heading off in a certain direction at a certain speed. This is what the polar representation of quaternions accomplishes. The preprint is available at

THE IDEA OF MISS WORLD IN 56 REPRESENTATIONS This is a morphing of all past 56 Miss World - from the first one in 1951 to the last one in 2006 - accompained by a lecture of Plato's Greater Hippias where it says that "beauty is a beautiful virgin". [ All images and sound have been found on the internet. ] Working on this project, at one moment I realized that all Miss World look almost the same, they all have this same dumb look and smile... Then what came to my mind is that the image of the Miss World isn't important at all, what is important in another hand is the idea of Miss World, what it represents. For this reason I decided to use black and white pictures with very fat unelegant pixels.

Playing Unfair: The Media Image of the Female Athlete It has been 30 years since Title IX legislation granted women equal playing time, but the male-dominated world of sports journalism has yet to catch up with the law. Coverage of womenï¿½s sport lags far behind menï¿½s, and focuses on female athletesï¿½ femininity and ***uality over their achievements on the court and field. While female athleticism challenges gender norms, women athletes continue to be depicted in traditional roles that reaffirm their femininityï¿½as wives and mothers or *** objects. By comparison, male athletes are framed according to heroic masculine ideals that honor courage, strength, and endurance. Playing Unfair is the first video to critically examine the post-Title IX media landscape in terms of the representation of female athletes. Sports media scholars Mary Jo Kane (University of Minnesota), Pat Griffin (University of Massachusetts), and Michael Messner (University of Southern California) look at the persistence of hetero***ism and homophobia in perpetuating gender stereotypes. They argue for new media images which fairly and accurately depict the strength and competence of female athletes. Using numerous media examples, Playing Unfair is sure to stimulate debate among women and men, athletes and non-athletes about the meaning of these images in world transformed by the presence of women in sport.
