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.
