NSF Workshop on Hybrid Neuro-Computer Vision Systems

NSF Workshop on Hybrid Neuro-Computer Vision Systems

April 19 - 20, 2010

Overview: The primary objective of this workshop is to serve as an impetus for new research directions focused on vision system designs that are based on synergistic combinations of neuro and computer vision. Over the past 40+ years, there has been considerable interest in "biologically inspired computer vision", with an emphasis on developing computer vision systems which are based on or "inspired by" the current state of knowledge of biological vision systems. The objective of this workshop is substantially different in that we are particularly interested in identifying synergies between human and machine vision and potential "neural interfaces" that could be used to create hybrid vision systems. An additional focus of the workshop will be on rapid scene analysis and recognition. We will not be focusing on reasoning and higher level cognition, rather we will look at recognition in the "blink" of an eye, "flash" of a CCD, and the synergistic combination of these two for rapid visual recognition.
