The annual conference on Neural Information Processing Systems (NIPS) is the flagship conference on neural computation. It draws preeminent academic researchers from around the world and is widely considered to be a showcase conference for new developments in network algorithms and architectures. The broad range of interdisciplinary research areas represented includes computer science, neuroscience, statistics, physics, cognitive science, and many branches of engineering, including signal processing and control theory. Only about 30 percent of the papers submitted are accepted for presentation at NIPS, so the quality is exceptionally high. These proceedings contain all of the papers that were presented.To obtain the rule I formulate and solve a wiring optimization problem. The goal is to find the sizes of axons and dendrites which minimize the total volume of wiring in a topographic wiring diagram for fixed locations of neurons. I specify theanbsp;...
