Biologically Inspired Vision Systems

Neuroscientists at MIT have developed a computer model that mimics the human vision system to accurately detect and recognize objects in a busy street scene, such as cars and motorcycles.

"Maybe we shouldn't be surprised," says David Lowe, a computer vision and object recognition expert at the University of British Colombia in Vancouver. "Human vision is vastly better at recognition than any of our current computer systems, so any hints of how to proceed from biology are likely to be very useful."

Google Portrait

Google Portrait is a demonstration system of IDIAP and Torchvision face detection technology. It is for personal and non-commercial use only. We acknowledge Google for providing the image indexing and retrieval service and we garantee that we don't perform any automated querying. Indeed, the query made by a user is equivalent to a query made directly on Google Image and the face detection processing is done "on-the-fly". Please note also that we don't make use of the page ranking information, but only the url of images indexed and retrieved by Google.

Watch out Riya! :)
