Cognitive Vision is more than just recognizing an object in an image or video. It involves the detection and recognition of multiple objects and then interpreting their relationship to generate an understanding of the scene.
The presentation will give a very general overview of human cognitive vision, both the psychological as well as the physiological aspects. It broadly covers the topics of what cognitive vision is, overall features of human cognition, and the basic neurophysiology of the brain and visual system. This will hopefully inform and stimulate the audience’s thinking on the subject, and result in a lively discussion following the talk.
This talk is fairly non-technical and understanding it should require only normal human cognitive abilities.
