From primal templates to invariant recognition
We can immediately recognize novel objects seen only once before -- in different positions on the retina and at different scales (distances). Is this ability hardwired by our genes or learned during development -- and ...
Learning Generic Invariances in Object Recognition: Translation and Scale
Invariance to various transformations is key to object recognition but existing definitions of invariance are somewhat confusing while discussions of invariance are often confused. In this report, we provide an operational ...
Neurons That Confuse Mirror-Symmetric Object Views
Neurons in inferotemporal cortex that respond similarly to many pairs of mirror-symmetric images -- for example, 45 degree and -45 degree views of the same face -- have often been reported. The phenomenon seemed to be an ...
Throwing Down the Visual Intelligence Gauntlet
In recent years, scientific and technological advances have produced artificial systems that have matched or surpassed human capabilities in narrow domains such as face detection and optical character recognition. However, ...
Learning and disrupting invariance in visual recognition
Learning by temporal association rules such as Foldiak's trace rule is an attractive hypothesis that explains the development of invariance in visual recognition. Consistent with these rules, several recent experiments ...
