Exploratory vision : the active eye by Michael S Landy( Book )

9 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Advances in sensing, signal processing, and computer technology during the past half century have stimulated numerous attempts to design general-purpose ma­ chines that see. These attempts have met with at best modest success and more typically outright failure. The difficulties encountered in building working com­ puter vision systems based on state-of-the-art techniques came as a surprise. Perhaps the most frustrating aspect of the problem is that machine vision sys­ tems cannot deal with numerous visual tasks that humans perform rapidly and effortlessly. In reaction to this perceived discrepancy in performance, various researchers (notably Marr, 1982) suggested that the design of machine-vision systems should be based on principles drawn from the study of biological systems. This "neuro­ morphic" or "anthropomorphic" approach has proven fruitful: the use of pyramid (multiresolution) image representation methods in image compression is one ex­ ample of a successful application based on principles primarily derived from the study of biological vision systems. It is still the case, however, that the perfor­ of computer vision systems falls far short of that of the natural systems mance they are intended to mimic, suggesting that it is time to look even more closely at the remaining differences between artificial and biological vision systems
Discovering psychology( Visual )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

7. Sensation and perception. Shows how visual information is gathered and processed, and how our perceptions are influenced by our culture, previous experiences, and personal interests. With Dr. David Hubel and Dr. Misha Pavel
Wireless Health 2014 : proceedings : National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD, USA, October 29 - 31, 2014 by Wireless Health (Conference)( )

Sensation and perception( Visual )

2 editions published between 2001 and 2007 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Focuses on the ways personal experience can influence perception. Describes how sense receptors function, how the brain processes sensory information, how expectations, values and prejudices influence perception, and the use of error and illusion as investigative techniques. Includes commentary by Dr. David Hubel of Harvard University and Dr. Misha Pavel of the Oregon Graduate Institute of Science and Technology
Augmented Cognition: Amplification of Attention for Better Decision( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The primary purpose of this project was to investigate the underlying principles for the future development of systems capable of estimating the cognitive state of an operator, the demands of the task, and the relevant environmental conditions. The cognitive state is estimated using physiological as well as behavioral measures. Examples of the physiological measures include EEG, heart rate, plethysmography, and galvanic skin response. The behavioral measures include performance on the task, position, movements (especially eye movements), and vocal emissions. Environmental sensors would include microphones, thermometers, video cameras, and infrared cameras. In addition, the environmental information would include a database that is as complete as possible in terms of the terrain and situation information obtained from other intelligence sources. The authors developed a theoretical framework for a class of models that relate attention allocation to a measure of workload, and they demonstrated their ability to apply this framework to several tasks. Subsequently, they carried out several experiments to investigate the effectiveness of this approach within a visual search paradigm. The results suggest that significant improvements are possible, but only in situations in which the performance is truly limited by the abilities and the state of the human operator

Memory, mind & megabyte : new technologies to power the aging brain by Eric Dishman( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Eric Dishman discusses Intel's progress in providing solutions for the aging population and the use of technology to diagnose disease and help people maintaining independance. Dr. Kaye provides an overview of the problem with aging and Alzheimer's, the economic implications and the prelimary results of his studies in this area. Dr. Pavel discusses the use of technology in healthcare to help diagnose, watch and warn about neurological disease. Dr. Khachaturian provides a broad overview of the aging process, its implications and the myths, and future trends of the aging brain
Discovering psychology by Philip G Zimbardo( Visual )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This program demonstrates how visual information is gathered and processed, and how our culture, previous experiences, and interests influence our perceptions. With Dr. David Hubel of Harvard University and Dr. Misha Pavel of the Oregon Graduate Institute of Science and Technology
Combating Uncertainty With Fusion( )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This report is a summary of a NASA/ONR-sponsored workshop, Combating Uncertainty with Fusion, that was organized in Woods Hole in April 2002. The main purpose of the workshop was to address a class of difficult computational problems that are characterized by combining large amounts of data or datasets from diverse sources that are related in complex, stochastic, and poorly understood ways. The intent was to determine whether understanding of biological fusion processes could provide guidance to the development of robust algorithms that would alleviate the difficulties encountered in a variety of application areas including the Earth Observation System
