Despite a plethora of scientific literature devoted to vision research and the trend toward integrative research, the borders between disciplines remain a practical difficulty. To address this problem, this book provides a systematic and comprehensive overview of vision from various perspectives, ranging from neuroscience to cognition, and from computational principles to engineering developments. It is written by leading international researchers in the field, with an emphasis on linking multiple disciplines and the impact such synergy can lead to in terms of both scientific breakthroughs and technology innovations.  It is aimed at active researchers and interested scientists and engineers in related fields.
Dr. Catherine Qi Zhao is an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. She obtained her Ph.D. from the University of California, Santa Cruz, followed by postdoctoral training at the California Institute of Technology. Prior to joining the University of Minnesot...
