I do not have a research area. My major area of interest is in advanced neural network models.
Three potential topics I'd be interested in working on are:
(1) Creating a more biologically accurate neural model.
(2) Implementing and testing the hierarchical temporal memory model, perhaps in combination with neuroevolution.
(3) An application - puting an existing neural algorithm into a game or learning simulation.
I have not yet teamed up with anyone for the final research project.
