Integrating spiking neural networks and deep learning algorithms on the neurorobotics platform (2022)
Presentation / Conference
Stentiford, R., Knowles, T. C., Feldoto, B., Ergene, D., Morin, F. O., & Pearson, M. J. (2022, July). Integrating spiking neural networks and deep learning algorithms on the neurorobotics platform. Paper presented at Living Machines 2022, Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio, United States

We present a neurorobotic model that can associate self motion (odometry) with vision to correct for drift in a spiking neural network model of head direction based closely on known rodent neurophys-iology. We use a deep predictive coding network to... Read More about Integrating spiking neural networks and deep learning algorithms on the neurorobotics platform.

A spiking neural network model of rodent head direction calibrated with landmark free learning (2022)
Journal Article
Stentiford, R., Knowles, T. C., & Pearson, M. J. (2022). A spiking neural network model of rodent head direction calibrated with landmark free learning. Frontiers in Neurorobotics, 16, -. https://doi.org/10.3389/fnbot.2022.867019

Maintaining a stable estimate of head direction requires both self-motion (idiothetic) information and environmental (allothetic) anchoring. In unfamiliar or dark environments idiothetic drive can maintain a rough estimate of heading but is subject t...

Direct Lyapunov design - A synthesis procedure for motor schema using a second-order Lyapunov stability theorem (2002)
Conference Proceeding
Harper, C., & Winfield, A. (2002). Direct Lyapunov design - A synthesis procedure for motor schema using a second-order Lyapunov stability theorem. In IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (2085-2090). https://doi.org/10.1109/IRDS.2002.1041573

In this paper we propose a new procedure for construction of motor schema typically used in behaviour-based robotics. The procedure reverses the standard stability analysis approach by searching for a control function to fit a pre-defined Lyapunov f...
