A model of modes of attention and inattention for artificial perception

Mark Witkowski, David Randell
2007 Bioinspiration & Biomimetics  
It builds on a theory of abductive perception; a formal definition for an artificial or robot perceptual system, using objects represented as feature clouds.  ...  This paper considers several aspects of natural visual attention and its link to wider notions of awareness, natural and artificial, in the context of foveated vision.  ...  Acknowledgements: This research is supported by EPSRC under grant EP/C530683/1, "Abductive Robot Perception: Modelling Granularity and Attention in Euclidean Representational Space".  ...

Disturbing Flowers: The Three-Dimentional Colours of Claud. Rapt. Pros. 2.90-132

Beatrice Bersani
2022 Classica et Mediaevalia  
Both the visual effects and the metaphoric charge of Claudian's colourful flowers undermine the idyllic atmosphere of the meadow and foreshadow Proserpina's abduction.  ...  Lines 90-93 have allowed me to introduce Claudian's way of stimulating visual effects that connect single chromatic details with the main narrative plot (Proserpina's abduction), here producing a divergence  ...  The focus on brightness, saturation and hue has allowed me to offer a more detailed and comprehensive understanding of the effect of colours-terms on the reader's visual perception of the text, emotions  ...

2020 BMC Biomedical Engineering  
Arms were extended/flexed for the range of motion of three different regimes: 1) horizontal adduction/abduction 2) flexion/extension 3) vertical abduction.  ...  Additional signal processing and filtering afforded the ability to visualize these motions in each plane of the body; and the 3-dimensional motion envelope of the arm.  ...  This can be due either to day-to-day inconsistency in musculo-skeletal features, such as flexibility and muscle fatigue, or due to ongoing adjustment in perceptions of current and target positions [38  ...

UFOs, Otherness, and Belonging: Identity in Remote Aboriginal Australia

Eirik Saethre
2007 Social Identities  
In a remote Aboriginal desert community in Central Australia, descriptions of UFOs merge popular and media portrayals of extraterrestrials with elements and themes found in local Aboriginal cosmology.  ...  Perhaps the most distinctive feature of abductions was that the victims were always kardiya.
