Title: Understanding the Physics of the Mind: A proposal for a Perceptual Science Initiative
Lead Author: Oliva, Aude
Abstract: Today, perceptual science is standing at the threshold of producing paradigm-shifting discoveries and transformative knowledge, with implications in domains of critical national interest, such as education, medicine, health sciences, bio-engineering, computer science, robotics, economics, among others. Perceptual science has the promise to be both significant and influential, in part because advances in its understanding has often been the gateway for new technologies (e.g., brain machine interfaces) but also because new ideas in perception often resonate with other fields like computer vision, neuroscience and robotics. The field has reached a level of maturity where fundamental research and extraordinary resources will revolutionize how we understand our interface with the outside world. Accelerated progress in the field will require fuller integration between all related areas of investigation, including the creation of laboratories and funding mechanisms specifically designed to foster integrated research.
