Selective-visual-attention algorithms have been successfully implemented in analog VLSI circuits.1 However, in addition to the usual issues of analog VLSI—such as the need to fi ne-tune a large number of biases— these implementations lack the spatial resolution and pre-processing capabilities to be truly useful for image-processing applications. Here we take an alternative approach and implement a neuro-mimetic algorithm for selective visual attention in digital hardware.
