Research a boon to artificial vision algorithms
Scientists at MIT are developing brains-on-a-chip for neuromorphic computing. It would allow processing facts, patterns and learning at lightning speed and could fast-forward the development of humanoids and autonomous driving technology.
Researchers from the CNRS and Université de Rennes 1, in collaboration with Airbus, have designed a visual pattern that elicits long-term avoidance of high-risk areas by raptors. The work clears the way for further investigation into the visual cognition of these birds, and it has applications for conservation, because raptors are among the most common victims of collisions with planes and wind turbines. Their findings are published in PLOS ONE.
