Scientific discussion meeting organised by Professor Michael Morgan FRS, Dr Paul Linton, Professor Jenny Read, Dr Dhanraj Vishwanath, Professor Sarah Creem-Regehr and Professor Fulvio Domini.
Leading approaches to computer vision (SLAM: simultaneous localization and mapping), animal navigation (cognitive maps), and human vision (optimal cue integration), start from the assumption that the aim of 3D vision is to produce a metric reconstruction of the environment. Recent advances in machine learning, single-cell recording in animals, virtual reality, and visuomotor control, all challenge this assumption. The purpose of this meeting was to bring these different disciplines together to formulate an alternative approach to 3D vision.
The schedule of talks and speaker biographies and abstracts are available below. An accompanying journal issue has been published in Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B.
