Sample text

There is some debate as to what exactly constitutes cognitive systems especially where they start and where they end. , may in different cultures represent partially or totally overlapping concepts, while they in others take on very specific connotations. g. in the form of human language. This defines the use of the term cognitive vision in this document. The inputs to a cognitive system, or the representations of information in early stages of it, are generally referred to as percepts. They will typically be visual or auditory, as these modalities generally carry most information about the environment.

This refinement of unit responses is an important consequence because one of the important goals of attention is to reduce or eliminate signal interference (Tsotsos 1990 [458]). By the end of this refinement process, the output of the attended units at the top layer will be the same as if the attended stimulus appeared on a blank field. This strategy of finding the winners within successively smaller receptive fields, layer by layer, in the pyramid and then pruning away irrelevant connections through inhibition is applied recursively through the pyramid.

Cognitive Vision Needs Attention to Link Sensing with Recognition 33 Fig. 2. 4 Feature Binding: The Link to Recognition A major contribution of the demonstration of how STM can operate within a complex visual hierarchy is the method of grouping features (known as the binding problem in computational neuroscience, Roskies 1999 [381]) into wholes. K. Tsotsos problem. Nevertheless, it is the first instance of such a solution and further work will investigate its generality. Following Roskies, “the canonical example of binding is the one suggested by Rosenblatt in which one sort of visual feature, such as an object’s shape, must be correctly associated with another feature, such as its location, to provide a unified representation of that object”.
