The aim of this Research Topic is to cover promising, recent, and novel
research trends regarding on the role of symmetry in shaping the learning/
information processing and neuronal organization in the brain, within a
theoretical and computational perspective.
Areas to be covered in this Research Topic may include, but are not limited
- New architectures beyond convolutional networks: biologically
plausible sensory representations that are simultaneously selective for
object identity and invariant to nuisance variation (including but not
limited to group transformations, beyond translations) in mammalian cortex.
- Sample complexity and invariant representations: is the brain using
symmetries to perform efficient computation?
- Variants of common plasticity rules or new class of rules that
incorporate sensory data symmetries: how can the brain discover data
symmetries and learn to represent sensory input in an invariant way?
- Role of time continuity, crucial in the sensory experience, in
defining classes of symmetries (implicit unsupervised labelling
