Computer Watches a Butterfly

Caption: Inspired by the behavior of the human eye, Boston College computer scientists have developed a technique that lets computers see objects as fleeting as a butterfly or tropical fish with nearly double the accuracy and 10 times the speed of earlier methods. BC computer scientists Hao Jiang and Stella X. Yu, who developed a novel solution of linear algorithms to streamline the computer's work, will present the team's findings at the IEEE Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition 2009, which takes place June 20-25 in Miami.
