Rather than aiming to one day restore natural vision, we might be better off thinking about how to create practical and useful artificial vision now.

Rather than predicting perceptual distortions, one needs to solve the inverse problem: What is the best stimulus to generate a desired visual percept?

How does the brain extract relevant visual features from the rich, dynamic visual input that typifies active exploration, and how does the neural representation of these features support visual navigation?

Neuromorphic event-based vision sensors may soon power low vision aids and retinal implants, where the visual scene has to be processed quickly and efficiently before it is displayed.
