Re: March 18 - Day ONE: What Can You Do With Embedded Vision?

NO RATINGS
Sorry, I am having some trouble with the text chat, let me try that again...

@bartholemew: Slides aren't online yet as I write this - it would be interesting if the material covers when and whether the data reduction algorithms should mimic the operation of biological systems (e.g. human/animal eye) vs. preprocessing the raw dataset in a machine-only paradigm, i.e. one where the biological system approach might end up abtracting away or losing information from raw sensor data that a machine-only paradigm could make good use of.

The slides are now available for download. Virtually all of the vision systems that I've seen do not try to mimic biological processes, but that is a very intriguing angle, and some peopel are pursuing it. E.g., Eutecus is a company that takes a biologically inspired approach.  On their web site they have a white paper describing their approach.  (I'd paste the link but the system doesn't seem to allow that.)
