Video Time Encoding and Decoding Machines

Package Description

This package provides code to encode and decode videos with time encoding machines consisting of gabor or centre surround receptive fields followed by Integrate-and-fire neurons [1], [2] . It supports both the pseudoinverse algorithm, described in [1], [2] and recurrent neural networks method, described in [3] for decoding.
