TALK: Incorporating Insights from Cognitive Science into AI
This talk will cover milestones in visual cognition and human neuroscience research which can inform the ongoing development of artificial intelligence systems. Building on cross-cutting advances in human and machine perception research, I will describe how we can design computational theories and models that are closer to how humans register scenes and events, focus their attention, and remember important information.
