mei-chenlabResearchers look to the human eye to boost computer vision efficiency

Conventional silicon architecture has taken computer vision a long way, but Purdue University researchers are developing an alternative path — taking a cue from nature — that they say is the foundation of an artificial retina. Like our own visual system, the device is geared to sense change, making it more efficient in principle than the computationally demanding digital camera systems used in applications like self-driving cars and autonomous robots.
