In the push to develop new computing systems that mimic the brain, researchers in Singapore and China have devised an artificial retina device for the perception and recognition of objects emitting mid-infrared radiation (MIR). Inspired by how human eyesight works, the neuromorphic device is a step towards better MIR machine vision, which is an important technology for medical diagnosis, autonomous driving, intelligent night vision and military defence.
