A video camera that mimics the human eye in efficiently recording only changes in movement promises to save many gigabytes of data that would otherwise make some research prohibitively costly, according to this article. The Dynamic Vision Sensor from Switzerland's iniLabs uses IBM's brain-like TrueNorth chips. "What we’re talking about -- the cameras sending information when something changes -- is actually a very central theme to how the brain works, or at least how neuroscientists think it works. We're capturing brain features at a high level," said Nabil Imam, a computer scientist at Cornell University.
