About this Research Topic
Recently, brain-inspired learning and deep learning have obtained wide attention in the areas of autonomous vehicles and robots. The goal is that the robot and vehicle can learn/adapt its surrounding environment to conduct different tasks via intelligent learning approaches.
Among many intelligent learning approaches, deep learning has gained a series of success across various areas including image, lidar, decision-making as well as user-interaction data. However, there are still many intriguing research problems, such as accuracy and robustness under uncertainties, learning efficiency for real robotic environment. An alternative has been proposed in the form of brain-inspired learning approaches such as spiking neuron network, which is a major research topic in theoretical neuroscience and neuromorphic engineering. Compared to deep learning approach, brain-inspired learning approaches exploit data-driven updates to gain efficiency by reducing redundant information based on asynchronous event processing.
