Intelligent Systems (IS)
def. A branch of computational science and information technology research that aims to replicate various aspects of human intelligence.
IS research areas include:
- Autonomous systems
- Data Discovery and Understanding
- Collaborative and Assistant systems
Borealis Designs' primary field of expertise is Intelligent Data Understanding
def. A biological system for unconscious collection and processing of visual information in living organisms, capable of detecting outstanding events in the visual environment to trigger attention-driven or unconscious actions.
Computer models of the pre-attentive vision are developed to autonomously detect an outstanding event in visual data and cue attention of humans.
Pre-attentive vision models are efficient tools for autonomous image prospecting in which an intelligent system seeks presence of salient features in incoming image frames.
Hubel and Wiesel (1981): Nobel Prize for research of saliency computation in the brain cortex. Bio-plausible saliency algorithms are used in numerous autonomous applications, e.g., Asimo Robot.
Expert intelligent systems are designed to replicate human reasoning about available information using a domain knowledge base and an inference engine.
Borealis Designs specializes in Interpretation Expert IS that infer situation descriptors from available sensor data.
