Lessons from insect eyes for computer vision
Studying neurobiological mechanisms in insect eyes (left) reveals fundamental features of how they detect visual features such as motion (centre). This conceptual understanding (centre) can then help develop artificial, electronic circuits (“microchips”) to achieve the same result (right).
