Deep neural networks as scientific models of vision

Thursday, June 13th, 2024 – 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Artificial deep neural networks (DNNs) are used in many different ways to address scientific questions about how biological vision works. In spite of the wide usage of DNNs in this context, their scientific value is periodically questioned. I will argue that DNNs are good in three ways for vision science: for prediction, for explanation, and for exploration. I will illustrate these claims by…
