For over three decades, I’ve studied and performed surgery on the human brain. I have always been fascinated by the power, plasticity and adaptability of the brain, and by how much of its amazing capacity is dedicated to processing and interpreting data we receive from our senses. With the rapid ascension of Artificial Intelligence (AI),
To learn more and to better understand how this level of artificial perception will be created, I became an advisor to AEye, a company developing cutting edge artificial perception and self-driving technologies, helping them use knowledge of the human brain to better inform their systems. This is known as biomimicry: the concept of learning from and replicating natural strategies from living systems and beings (plants, animals, humans, etc.) to create more responsive and intelligent technologies and products. Essentially,
This is the nature of our intelligent vision. While our eyes are always scanning and searching to identify new objects entering a scene, we focus our attention on objects that matter as they move into areas of concern, allowing us to determine an appropriate response. In short, we search a scene, consciously acquire the objects that matter, and act on them as required.
