Excited that our preprint “Improved multitask learning through synaptic intelligence” just went life on the arXiv (https://arxiv.org/abs/1703.04200). This article, by Ben Poole, Surya and myself, illustrates the benefits of complex synaptic dynamics on continual learning in neural networks. Here a …
