Brief description How can we see the forest without intentionally looking for the trees? How can we tell traffic is flowing smoothly on a busy highway without identifying vehicles or measuring their speed? These are the questions that inspire this research project. Humans are endowed with the ability to grasp the ‘gist’ or overall meaning of a complex visual scene from a single glance and without attention to details. The aim of this project is to develop new computational vision models that combine biological visual processing with probabilistic inference for gist recognition. The developed models will be able to mimic human vision by analysing a complex dynamic scene rapidly and classifying its semantic categories, without identifying individual objects.
