Abstract : Motion information is a crucial cue regarding the survival of a biological or artificial system, and a generic perceptual task is to detect a dynamical "object" among the background, i.e., to segment the image region corresponding to this object in an image sequence and to label the segmented piece of data. We consider this as "visual event detection". It appears that the two-layered retinal neural network is able to process such non-trivial visual cues . We are going to review these recent results and make explicit the fact that early-vision is not to be considered as a simple "filtering stage", but as a complex source of different visual information, yielding parallel processing strategies in higher-level areas of the visual system.
