Cognitive systems show flexible, non-stereotyped responses to external stimuli. This requires the ability to learn, i.e., to discover and to use the statistical regularities of the environment. My current research interests focus on this aspect of cognition in the context of biological and machine vision, including image modeling, statistics of natural scenes and optic flow and texture processing. The results can be used for the automatic generation of vision systems from their input statistics.
