The Hippocampus as a 'Predictive Map'

This DeepMind post applies a neuroscience lens to a longstanding mathematical theory from machine learning to provide new insights into the nature of learning and memory. Specifically, the authors propose that the area of the brain known as the hippocampus offers a unique solution to this problem by compactly summarising future events using what we call a “predictive map.”
