Unifying Activation- and Timing-based Learning Rules for Spiking Neural Networks

Meta Review

This paper induced divergent reviews. Three of the reviewers felt it was a decent contribution that provided a novel insight about how to combine two different types of learning rule, but one reviewer felt strongly that it really did not provide any major contribution and only engaged in a relatively trivial mixing of models. Given these reviews, it was hard to come to a decision, but 'accept' seemed appropriate given that 3 out of 4 reviewers were fairly positive.
