NETI 2019

The Center for Perceptual Systems at the University of Texas at Austin is
hosting a workshop on "Natural Environments, Tasks and Intelligence" (

Dates:  April 26 – 28, 2019 (Friday - Sunday)

Purpose:  Perceptual and motor systems must reflect the natural tasks the
organism performs as well as the properties of the natural environments in
which the organism performs those tasks. Thus, the aim of this workshop is
to stimulate research in "natural systems analysis," which consists of
several interrelated components: (i) identification and characterization of
natural tasks, (ii) measurement and analysis of natural scene statistics,
(iii) analysis of the computational requirements of natural tasks, (iv)
rigorous experimental study of neural and behavioral performance in natural

Organizers: Bill Geisler, Mary Hayhoe, and Alex Huk
