Abstract

In many ways, “vision science” can serve as a fruitful proxy for research in neuroscience and artificial intelligence. That is, given that a significant fraction of our nervous systems is geared towards processing visual information (and the subsequent cognitive and behavioral effects), the study of vision provides a rich means to explore a rich variety of cutting-edge topics of broad interest in science and technology. For example, vision researchers are a mix of experimentalists (e.g., neurophysiology, psychophysics), engineers (e.g., computer vision), biophysical & mathematical modelers (e.g., theoretical frameworks of learning), and translational scientists (e.g., development of retinal protheses). As such, vision research is a focal point where many efforts in applied mathematics come together.
