Neural mechanisms for visual target detection and attention in complex scenes

Project Summary

This project will study neurons in the insect brain that solve one of the biggest problems for computer vision systems
- tracking the motion of tiny targets moving against strongly camouflaged backgrounds. The results will be used to develop a novel biologically inspired model for target tracking with applications for smart cameras and robotics.
