Who’s behind the camera: computer vision and author identification

Predicting authorship and detecting forgeries has been a long-time application of computer vision in art and science. Humans, as visual beings, have a remarkable ability to draw different conclusions from a piece of artwork, even without formal training, and to obtain information such as: where the artwork takes place, what kind of artist had made […]

How to see like a computer

Our brains work daily to assemble shapes and discern object using location-specific neurons in V1, primary visual cortex. V1 is not a code name for a robot, actually it’ss the best-studied visual area of human brains, which is specialized for processing information about static and moving objects, and pattern recognition. Therefore, it’s not strange that […]
