A cognitive stochastic machine based on Bayesian inference: a behavioral analysis

Abstract

Bayesian models and stochastic computing form a promising paradigm for non-conventional, bio-inspired computation architectures. In particular, they are able to handle uncertainty and promise low power consumption. In this paper we study the application of such an architecture, the Sliced Bayesian Machine (SlicedBM) to a real-world problem, Sound Source Localization (SSL) for robots. We present an analysis of the quality of results and of computing time according to several parameters: sensor precision, result threshold, internal word length. Furthermore, we show that sensor data precision does not heavily influence the computation. On the opposite, the precision of the probability values plays an important role on result quality. This parameter also determines the circuit size. We also show that the higher the re-sampling threshold (RT), the better the distribution computed by the machine. Our results make it possible to choose optimal design parameters for a circuit along several trade-offs, and according to a given sensor fusion application.
