Bill Geisler, psychology professor and director of the Center for Perceptual Systems, and post-doctoral student, Johannes Burge, have discovered how to extract and use information in an individual image to determine how far objects are from the focus distance, a feat only accomplished by human and animal visual systems until now. The research will be published in theProceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. They Read about the study in UT News...
