Biologically Motivated Computer Vision


Professor Malik from Computer Science studies computer vision, but from a perspective that is strongly linked to psychological and neurobiological evidence from human and primate vision. He has been a leader in formulating and implementing biologically plausible models of vision that are also consistent with much of the known literature in human psychophysics. Together with a number of collaborators, he has proposed precise and sophisticated models of texture discrimination, stereoscopic depth perception, and motion perception.
