Paper Abstract

Spatial and temporal information in sequences of images is often represented in different formats and treated separately. Yet careful analysis of retinal organization indicates that it may simultaneously code the spatial and temporal organization of a scene in a fairly simple manner. In this paper we consider the structure and function of the retina and develop a new theory that describes its role in early vision. We also compare the results of this theory with some previously documented neurological data and show that the two are similar. Finally, we propose a parallel implementation that is similar in structure and function to the cellular components of the retina. The result is a convolutional space-time.
