Leibovitz, D. P. (2010) Lilac Chaser Illusion and Virtual Eyeballs. Talk presented at Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada. [doi: 10.13140/RG.2.1.2268.5923]

Lilac-ChaserAbstract: David Leibovitz will give a live demo of his research-in-progress and discuss the nature of his research and future plans. David will demonstrate a framework, whereby a Virtual Eye is looking at the Lilac Chaser visual illusion. Currently, the implementation has a minimal cognitive component, a set of photoreceptors for the fovea, and saccadic jitter for the eye.

Emergic Cognitive System

Emergic Cognitive SystemThe Emergic Cognitive System (or ECS) is a system for embodying  a developmental cognitive model in a virtual and dynamic agent that is situated in a dynamic environment using simulated real-time for non-representational information processing. This allows a zero parameter model to be tested with a wide variety of experimental paradigms covering a large contextual domain.

Historical Names: Emergic Simulation System (ESS); Emergic Vision System (EVS)

Emergic Cognitive Model

Emergic Cognitive Model

The Emergic Cognitive Model (or ECM) is a unifying cognitive model that develops genetically, i.e., based on development parameters or modeling DNA. ECM advances a single powerful theory of human cognition for explaining a variety of emergent phenomena described across experimental paradigms and academic disciplines

The unifying model has no free parameters, and its emergent behavior is commensurate with expectations in its developmental differences, as well as its interactions across a variety of environments, stimuli and situations.

Unifying modeling is guided by the principles of the Emergic Approach for progressing science. Thus, ECM is based on the Emergic Network (a computational architecture), is embodied and developed within virtual agents (persons), and situated within environments (worlds) of an Emergic Cognitive System, for non-representational real-time information processing.

Jittering retina of the Emergic Cognitive Model

Currently, the Emergic Cognitive Model supports low-level aspects of dynamic visual processing. It has a biological realistic retina (with a blind spot, a random placement of photoreceptors that grow in size beyond the fovea), and supports eye movement (including jitter) without motion blur, blinking, and object motion.
