Binding problem can be divided into several subproblems
The binding problem can be subdivided into several subproblems:
- Feature binding: How are features of stimuli combined into coherent representations of objects? Perhaps through biased receptive fields.
- Subjective unity of perception: How are percepts integrated into a coherent experience? Perhaps through short-term feature memory.
- Variable binding: How are roles associated with entities? Perhaps through firing synchrony. Nengo models this as convolutions between semantic pointers.
- General coordination: How are abstract latent representations combined coherently with current relevance?
