The VISUALISE project aims as solving a number of related problems previously ignored in existing retina processing models, namely:
Investigating the dynamics of non-standard type RGCs with natural scenes.
Identifying the nonlinear transformations from natural scenes to non-standard type ganglion cell response and associated computational models, including the influence of latency on encoding.
Statistical analysis of RGC population coding response to natural stimuli including measuring how the cells interact.
Software and hardware emulation of an event-based bio-inspired artificial retina that captures the dynamics and adaptive nature of both individual neurons and neuronal populations and their precisely-timed and correlated spiking output.
Experimental study, application and evaluation of the bio-inspired artificial retina under challenging visual conditions in a predator-prey scenario.
