Fulbright Future Fellowship
I was awarded a Fulbright Future Fellowship that will let me stay in limbo between University of Michigan/Western Australia for a while longer! I will continue working with Professor Wei Lu in developing the next generation of artificial intelligence algorithms by using principles underlying the brain.
Merging neuroscience with algorithms to make deep learning more efficient is an obvious, but extremely non-trivial, step that needs to be taken. Having already developed snnTorch while at UMich, I'm looking forward to exploring alternatives to backpropagation, or perhaps even finding the links between backprop and the brain!
