Computational Vision


Professor of Optometry and Vision Science Bruno Olshausen discusses computational models of sensory coding and visual perception.

Research projects in computational vision include investigations into binocular vision, motion and space perception, computer aided corneal topographic modeling and visualization, computational neuroscience, spatial vision modeling, computational modeling of early vision, texture, stereopsis, 3D vision, object recognition, scanpath theory, telerobotics, virtual reality, ocular aberrations, and myopia.
