On this PhD defense, inhibition as a means for inducing competition in unsupervised feature extraction will be discussed. The focus will be on:
1) "The role of inhibition in overcoming the loss of information" and
2) "Overcoming loss of information caused by inhibition itself".
In this PhD work, a new learning mechanism for learning inhibitory weights is introduced and a hypothesis for explaining the function of VIP dis-inhibitory cells in the brain is proposed.
