MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

Despite a plethora of scientific literature devoted to vision research
and the trend toward integrative
research, the borders between disciplines
remain a practical
difficulty. To address this
problem, this
book provides a systematic and comprehensive overview of vision from various
perspectives, ranging from neuroscience to cognition, and from computational
principles to engineering developments. It is written by leading international researchers in the field, with an
emphasis on linking
multiple disciplines and the impact such synergy can lead to in terms of both
scientific breakthroughs and technology innovations.  It is aimed at active researchers and interested scientists and
engineers in related fields.


Feature:

Provides a systematic and comprehensive overview of vision from
various perspectives

Addresses the barrier between vision research and integrative
research on cognition

Links multiple visual cognition disciplines and highlights
the impact this can have on
technological innovations

Written by leading
experts in the field

MEET THE AUTHOR

Dr. Qi Zhao is an
Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering
and the Department of Ophthalmology at the National University of Singapore. She obtained her PhD from the University of California, Santa Cruz, followed by Postdoctoral training at the California Institute of Technology. Her current research program aims to integrate theories and tools from visual cognition, computer vision, machine learning, computational neuroscience, and computer graphics to develop neuroscience inspired artiļ¬cial visual systems, and reciprocally, to use these approaches to inspire interesting experimental design for psychophysical and neurophysiological study of the biological visual system, and gain insights into visual and cognitive disorders.
