This book is a dialogue between researchers who study biological visual and computer scientists and engineers who seek to build computer vision systems that actively explore the environment. By describing new and important ways to design robots analogous to biological visual systems, it provides deep insights into the problems and solutions of computer vision. The book is divided into four parts, each addressing a different aspect of exploratory or active vision in biological and machine vision systems. The chapters are written by a cross-disciplinary selection of leading researchers who study computer and biological vision. As a result, many researchers and students concerned with vision will find this an invaluable survey to this fast-moving field.
