Human vision is very advanced.  While a human child can look at a cartoon picture of a chicken and know that's a chicken, computers cannot.   We can also recognize cars, people, trees and lampposts instantaneously on a busy street without much thought and decide what to do. That's an enormous number of computations and just one reason that coming up with a computer-driven system that can mimic the human brain in visually recognizing objects has been difficult.  Eugenio Culurciello of Yale's School of Engineering&Applied Science has developed a machine dubbed Neuflow, which is 'based' on the human visual system and operates much more quickly and efficiently than predecessors, coming closer to the mammalian visual system. read more
