Learning to Look

By Per-Erik Forssen


In this talk I will present some recent results on a biologically inspired system that autonomusly learns to perform saccadic gaze control. Saccadic gaze control is the process of rapidly shifting gaze between objects that attract the visual attention. The talk will start with a brief overview of what is known about eye movements and eye configuration in animals and humans. I will then describe how this is related to interest-point-based object recognition and how I have made use of this relation to learn saccadic gaze control on the LCI robots.
