Squirrel on a Log

People recognize objects effortlessly. When applying to graduate school in 1983 I asked how it was that people could instantly recognize a squirrel on a log and how we might build machines capable of the same. Thirty years later we are much closer to this goal. Still, robust general object recognition comparable to what we as people accomplish lies far beyond the current state-of-the-art.

This particualr squirrel is a Gold-mantled Ground Squirrel enjoying a warm summer day in Rocky Mountain National Park.
