comment Is there evidence of neurons corresponding to the certainty of next input prediction?
@Peter How is this reacting to certainty? You state that neurons settle for the same words even if the input is just visually similar. But I'm interested whether layers have a mechanism of knowing their own uncertainty and act upon it.

comment How are positions and counts of higher concepts encoded in sparse representations?
My question was not if periphery vision is enough to recognize faces. I though that maybe by design, the "face" neuron only fires when there is a face in the center of view span. This would explain how two faces would be represented, that is, they won't be represented at the same time at all.

Thanks for pointing out. Also, it's a good insight that counting is a temporal process. And for very small numbers (that can be recognized at a glimpse) that might indeed be individual neurons representing the numbers. So the problem is more about positions. I have the impression that positions are very temporal, too. Do you know if the "face" neuron would fire only if there is a face right in front of you, i.e. in the center of the field of view where we have sharp vision?
