Abstract

We propose an EℓI-chan, Emergent ℓocal Indicator Mechanism, to model the representation and self-organization of intermediate features in the visual pathway. This model is motivated by the orientation specificity in the primary visual cortex. Our simulations of EℓI-chan demonstrate that local indicators of the locations of intermediate features emerge, and they become the seeds for unsupervised learning and pattern recognition; EℓI-chan predicts those portions of the input imagery where intermediate features potentially exist. Hence, EℓI-chan can be used to define a set of intermediate features for adaptation, and the onwards processing in a hierarchical pattern recognition system.
