[visionlist] NETI workshop at UT Austin

NETI 2016
The Center for Perceptual Systems at the University of Texas at Austin is
hosting a workshop on “Natural Environments, Tasks and Intelligence”

Dates:  April 15 – 17, 2016 (Friday – Sunday)
Purpose:  Perceptual and motor systems must reflect the natural tasks the
organism performs as well as the properties of the natural environments in
which the organism performs those tasks. Thus, the aim of this workshop is to
stimulate research in “natural systems analysis,” which consists of
several interrelated components: (i) identification and characterization of
natural tasks, (ii) measurement and analysis of natural scene statistics, (iii)
analysis of the computational requirements of natural tasks, (iv) rigorous
experimental study of neural and behavioral performance in natural tasks.

Organizers: Bill Geisler, Mary Hayhoe, and Dana Ballard
