Interpreting visual information to understand the environment is a challenging problem in computer science. Yet biological human vision seems to process the visual environment effortlessly. This supports the notion that understanding biological vision will help to solve problems in machine vision. However, some of the biggest advances in our understanding of human vision have occurred as a direct result of modern computing techniques. We can only really say we understand a complex system fully when we can recreate or simulate it, test hypotheses on the simulation, and take the simulation to the limits of its validity.
