Template based black-box optimization of dynamic neural fields

Abstract : Due to their strong non-linear behavior, optimizing the parameters of dynamic neural fields is particularly challenging and often relies on expert knowledge and trial and error. In this paper, we study the ability of particle swarm optimization (PSO) and covariance matrix adaptation (CMA-ES) to solve this problem when scenarios specifying the input feeding the field and desired output profiles are provided. A set of spatial lower and upper bounds, called templates are introduced to define a set of desired output profiles. The usefulness of the method is illustrated on three classical scenarios of dynamic neural fields: competition, working memory and tracking.
