The 4th ACME Research Seminar: Restricted Boltzman machines
The 'Attention, Computational Models and Eye Movements' (ACME) Research and Study Group conducted the 4th Research Seminar dedicated to Restricted Boltzman machines
The ACME members discussed Restricted Boltzman machines and their role in modelling of visual attention and perception. The head of the group Dr. Joe MacInnes gave a talk on the evolution of Boltzman machines and their architecture. The ACME Group considered possible modifications of these algorithms to accomplish the ACME project 'A computational model to simulate visual stability from eye movements and spatial attention.'
Also, a group member Liya Merzon made a presentation on evaluation procedures of saliency models performance on an example of Information Gain (IG) proposed by Kummerer et al. (2014).
