Learning receptor positions from imperfectly known motions

ABSTRACT
An algorithm is described for learning image interpolation functions for sensor arrays whose sensor
positions are somewhat disordered. The learning is based on failures of translation invariance, so it
does not require knowledge of the images being presented to the visual system. Previously reported
implementations of the method assumed the visual system to have precise knowledge of the
translations. We demonstrate here that translation estimates computed from the
imperfectly interpolated images can have enough accuracy to allow the learning process to converge to
a correct interpolation.
2. INTRODUCTION
The human visual system has the capability of making fine geometric estimates even though the
receptor array is disordered,1
variable in density,2
and changes after birth as the eye grows and the
fovea becomes tightly packed.3
