EUVIP Session 7: Biologically Inspired Computer Vision (Special Session)

Compound eyes''

description of the session

Recent advances in imaging technologies have yielded scientific data at unprecedented detail and volume, leading to the need of a shift of paradigm in image processing and computer vision. Beyond the usual classical von Neumann architecture, one strategy that is emerging in order to process and interpret this amount of data follows from the architecture of biological organisms and shows for instance computational paradigms implementing asynchronous communication with a high degree of local connectivity in sensors or brain tissues. This session aims at bringing together researchers from different fields of Biologically Inspired Computer Vision to present latest results in the field, from fundamental to more specialized topics, including visual analysis based on a computational level, hardware implementation, and the design of new more advanced vision sensors. It is expected to provide a comprehensive overview in the computer area of biologically motivated vision. On the one hand, biological organisms can provide a source of inspiration for new computationally efficient and robust vision models and on the other hand machine vision approaches can provide new insights for understanding biological visual systems. This session covers a wide range of topics from fundamental to more specialized topics, including visual analysis based on a computational level, hardware implementation, and the design of new more advanced vision sensors. In particular, we expect to provide an overview of a few representative applications and current state of the art of the research in this area.

  • biography of organizer and contact information

    Laurent Perrinet is researcher in Computational Neuroscience at the "Institut de Neurosciences de la Timone" (France), a joint research unit (CNRS / Aix-Marseille Université). He graduated from the aeronautics engineering school SUPAERO, in Toulouse (France) with a signal processing and stochastic modelization degree. His research program is focusing in bridging the complex dynamics of realistic models of large-scale models of spiking neurons with functional models of low-level vision. His current challenge is to be able to translate, or compile in computer terminology, such functional models into neural architectures that would exhibit similar dynamics. He was co-editor of the book "Biologically inspired computer vision: fundamentals and applications", Wiley VCH, 2016. Contact Information
