This talk provides an overview of the interdisciplinary science of vision, with emphasis on meaningful open problems in human and computer vision and contemporary approaches for solving such problems. It highlights selected challenges involved in understanding, modeling, and simulating human vision mechanisms; compares and contrasts the human vision system and computer vision systems designed to achieve comparable functionality; and contextualizes the latest advances in computer vision, artificial intelligence, and deep learning and their impact on the advancement of vision science. Moreover, it presents correlations between vision science and selected aspects of cognitive neurosciences, artificial intelligence, and representative works of art.
