The Frankfurt Bernstein- Project “Frankfurt Vision Initiative” ambitiously aims to develop a functioning visual system. However, fundamental breakthroughs will be necessary to do this. What are the problems and what ideas will be needed to overcome them? If wesucceed, how will this contribute toour understanding of the brain? Prof. von der Malsburg, senior fellow at the Frankfurt Institute for Advanced studies (FIAS) answered these and other questions in his lecture.
