An Introduction to Vector Symbolic Architectures and Hyperdimensional Computing

August 29, 9:00 am - 10:30 am (CEST)

Speakers: Peer Neubert, Kenny Schlegel, Stefan Schubert

Tutorial website:


This tutorial is about solving computational problems using calculations in vector spaces with thousands of dimensions. We will outline the mathematical foundations, present available approaches in form of Vector Symbolic Architectures and show practical applications, e.g., on recognizing places from images of a 2800 km trip through Norway across different seasons.  

The tutorial will provide a basic introdution to the topic.
