Leveraging human fusion can enhance computational moving target recognition algorithms. Cognitive models exploit a human's visual discrimination of object color, size, motion, and orientation. From the biological pathways of the magnocellular and parvocellular pathways, information sets are fused for a single perception of an object. For instance, a human tracking a target could take advantage of a moving target relative to stationary objects or a large object amongst smaller objects. Cognition, or attention to salient information, can be explicitly represented as a set of information outside a covariance boundary. The paper proposes a cognitive-based attentional model that leverages information asymmetries for moving target recognition.
