Caltech researchers train computers to analyze fruit-fly behavior
Date:4/8/2009

imilar behaviors in humans.

"Our visual system tells us a lot about what other people are doing--who is eating, who is beating someone else up, who is blushing, who got the guy or girl," Perona notes. "One goal of my field, computational vision, is designing machines that can detect and interpret human intentions, actions and activities. To do that, we need to start with organisms that are simpler and easier to study. David Anderson showed me how interesting and rich fly behaviors are, and so we started collaborating."

"There's a lot of information in these videos that we can now squeeze out in order to understand what controls these social interactions in flies," Anderson adds. "It makes it possible for us to study what we were not capable of studying before."
