Why do training and fixing a reservoir yield very similar results (in an echo state network)?

Disclaimer: I asked this question 2 days ago in Cross Validated, but it has been left unanswered. I am trying to better understand how echo state networks work. To see, how fixing the weights of the ...

What are Reservoir computers used for today?

Reservoir computers were very popular in the early 2000s. From what I understand, the advantage of reservoir computers is that, as opposed to generic recurrent neural networks, training is only done ...

What do echo state networks give us over a generic RNN resevoir?

Slightly generalizing the definition in Jaeger 2001, let's define a reservoir system to be any system of the form $$h_{t}=f(h_{t-1}, x_t)$$ $$y_t=g(Wh_t)$$ where $f$ and $g$ are fixed and $W$ is a ...

What are examples of machine learning techniques inspired by neuroscience?

What are examples of machine learning techniques (i.e. models, algorithms, etc.) inspired (to different extents) by neuroscience? Particularly, I'm interested in recent developments, say less than 10 ...
