Novel visual computations

Let’s admit it: brains are not computers. Indeed, computers are still deceptive compared to biological perceptual systems. Think about rapidly detecting a novel object in clutter. Think about performing this with little supervision at a low energetic cost…

To narrow the gap between neuroscience and the theory of sensory processing computations, I am interested in bridging geometrical regularities found in natural scenes with the properties of neural computations as they are observed in sensory processes or behavior.
