This page presents the recordings of the seminar course on VSAs/Hyperdimensional Computing titled "Computing with High-Dimensional Vectors". The course is organized by Redwood Center for Theoretical Neuroscience and Berkeley Wireless Research Center at UC Berkeley during fall 2021. The course consists of twelve modules. A lecture within each module is given by one of the instructors or an invited lecturer.
