    Computer vision is complex - many vision tasks are known to be NP-hard. There is however a vision system which performs extraordinary well under many real-world conditions: the human visual system. In my research group, we therefore seek inspiration from the human visual system to develop computer vision methods.

    The topics I will address in my presentation deal with the questions "Which parts of the visual data are most promising for future analysis?” or "How should a vision system wisely spend its computing resources?” To address these questions, we make use of the concept of visual attention, a mechanism from human perception that enables humans to deal with the huge amount of sensory input by concentrating resources on promising parts of the data. We show how such methods can be used to facilitate scene processing, e.g. in the areas of segmentation, object discovery, or active object search.
