Computer Vision, Inspired by the Human Brain
March/April 2008 (vol. 10 no. 2)
pp. 6-11
Pam Frost Gorder, science writer
As scientists work to develop intelligent machines, some are taking their cues from biology. Such is the case at the Center for Biological and Computational Learning at MIT, where a computer model is emulating the human brain's vision center. The model replicates what happens during the first few fractions of a second after we see an object—the part of vision performed by the unconscious mind.
