Neural Networks for Vision and Image Processing

Edited by Gail A. Carpenter and Stephen Grossberg

A Bradford Book




This interdisciplinary survey brings together recent models and experiments on how the brain sees and learns to recognize objects. It shows how to use these insights in technology and describes how neural networks provide a unifying computational framework for reaching these goals. Several chapters describe experiments in neurobiology and visual perception that clarify properties of biological vision and key conceptual issues that biological models need to address. Other chapters describe neural and computational models of biological vision that address such issues and clarify processes whereby biological vision derives its remarkable flexibility and power. Still other chapters use biologically derived models or heuristics to suggest neural network solutions to challenging technological problems in computer vision. Topics range from analyses of motion, depth, color and form to new concepts about learning, attention, pattern recognition, and hardware implementation.
