Selected Topics in Neurocomputing: Vision

Limited number of participants! Please register for this seminar here in moodle.

Attendance is required on the first day, when you will receive the topic of your presentation.

In this interdisciplinary seminar  the phenomenon of vision is studied from different viewpoints

We start with psychological and biological foundations and then treat approaches to building seeing

The Institut für Neuroinformatik (INI) is a central research unit of the Ruhr-Universität Bochum. We aim to understand the fundamental principles through which organisms generate behavior and cognition while linked to their environments through sensory systems and while acting in those environments through effector systems. Inspired by our insights into such natural cognitive systems, we seek new solutions to problems of information processing in artificial cognitive systems. We draw from a variety of disciplines that include experimental approaches from psychology and neurophysiology as well as theoretical approaches from physics, mathematics, electrical engineering and applied computer science, in particular machine learning, artificial intelligence, and computer vision.
