Event Prediction and Object Motion Estimation in the Development of Visual Attention

By Christian Balkenius and Birger Johansson


A model of gaze control is describes that includes mechanisms for predictive control using a forward model and event driven expectations of target behavior. The model roughly undergoes stages similar to those of human infants if the influence of the predictive systems is gradually increased
