Engineering Biology:

What can a fruit fly teach us about self driving cars?

In person talk by Tibor Kozek, Chief Executive Officer at Imagize

Thursday December 8, 2022, 7 pm PST

SRI International, 333 Ravenswood Ave, Menlo Park, CA 94025

We live in a visual age where daily life is increasingly connected to various forms of imaging technology, from selfies to self-driving cars. Utilizing visual information to manage our lives is not exactly a new idea: it is almost as old as life itself. The first eyes appear in the fossil record some 550 million years ago and the intervening time allowed Nature to produce some truly awe inspiring solutions to technical problems which modern technology is hard pressed to replicate.

We'll take a tour of the biology of vision, mostly of retinal physiology, with the eye of an engineer motivated not only to understand how we see, but also to utilize the concepts developed by millions of years of "R&D".
