Learning new tricks from old dogs: canine gaze tracking

Researchers from the University of Helsinki investigated the similarities and differences in people and dog gazing in interaction. There were various independent studies focusing on canine gazing, but this is the first study that did the comparisons under very similar condition, focusing on dogs’ visual attention in social scenes. The researchers tracked and recorded the eye […]

Seeing with Humans: Gaze-Assisted Neural Image Captioning

Gaze tracking uses human gaze data for various applications in computer-vision systems, since gaze reflects how humans process visual scenes. Recently, researchers from Max Planck Institute for Informatics, Saarbrucken wanted to know whether gaze data can also be beneficial for scene-centric tasks, such as image captioning. They presented a new perspective on gaze-assisted image captioning using […]
