What is the required stimulus to produce a desired percept? Our latest work on deep learning-based stimulus optimization was featured in a news article by TechXplore.

Prof. Beyeler was mentioned in a recent article by The Guardian.

Prof. Beyeler was featured in a Giz Asks article about the prospect of using brain-machine interfaces to directly write in information to the brain.

Our recent research was featured in NVIDIA’s I AM AI trailer, premiered at NVIDIA GTC 2021

Instead of focusing on one day restoring ‘natural’ vision, we may be better off thinking about how to create ‘practical’ and ‘useful’ artificial vision now.

Prof. Beyeler talks about how bionic vision, as sci-fi as it sounds, is already helping to restore vision to the blind.

In UCSB’s College of Engineering, the phrase ‘reverse engineering the brain’ tends to relate to emerging technologies in neural networks and new machine-learning models that function more like the human brain.

Michael Beyeler recently sat down with PCMag to talk about bionic vision and his move to UC Santa Barbara.
