When you break it down, all vision really is, physiologically speaking, the transformation of light into electrical pulses that are then processed in stages by different parts of the brain. Sounds a lot like a computer, doesn’t it? But computers aren’t as good at reliably “seeing” and recognizing objects as humans are, at least not yet. According to some folks, this is because the brain simply isn’t like a computer at all. Others, like computer scientists Timothée Masquelier and Saeed Kheradpisheh, believe that computers may already work a lot like the human vision system—we just haven’t taken the right lessons from biology and applied them…
