Understanding Visual Scenes in 200 milliseconds

One of the remarkable aspects of human image understanding is that we are able to recognize the meaning of a novel image very quickly and independently of the complexity of the image. This talk will review findings in human perception that help us understand which mechanisms the human brain uses to achieve fast visual recognition, accurate visual search and adequate memorization of visual information. It also will describe the limits of human perception, as well as how to use our understanding of the pros and cons of these mechanisms for designing artificial vision systems and visual displays for human use.
