Context-Aware Image Compression for Artificial Retinas

by Dr. Christos Bergeles
Current Projects

Artificial retinas are considered an “engineering approach” to restoring sight when the eye/brain neural connectivity is intact. They are considered complementary to approaches involving stem cells or gene therapies, and has already seen some ...
