Learning to see by moving

Even though motor theories of perception have a long history, there’s has been a little amount of work in computational models of perception that make use of motor information. Nowadays the dominant paradigm in computer vision for learning various features relies on training neural networks to recognize objects using millions of annotated images. It seems […]

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 predict cuteness

“Cuteness” is a concept that received lots of attention not only from the vast population of the Internet, but from psychologists and neurologists as well. For example, usually brain activity (using fMRI, like in work of Kim and Hamann) is greater when the stimulus has infant-like characteristics, like big eyes, fat cheeks, or a large […]

From emotion to animation

A long time ago most of the cartoons and animated movies were made with months and sometimes years of work to create realistic characters. Nowadays computer graphics became more realistic than ever, and computer-generated imagery (CGI) creates wonders in your favorite movies. Computer vision field includes facial motion capture and facial animation, which makes these […]
