The IEEE Workshop on CIVI gathers researchers in the area of Computational Intelligence with the specific interests in space representation, mental imagery, spatial reasoning, vision-driven navigation, map building, shape and object representation and recognition, virtual reality, etc...
The term, Visual Intelligence, was borrowed from the Psychology circles, and it refers to one of the seven types of Human Intelligence: Logical, Musical, Linguistic... and Visual (or Visual-Spatial) Intelligence. In a broad sense, Visual Intelligence refers to the ability to represent the outer world (spatial world) internally in the computer systems. In that sense, the focus of the IEEE CIVI is not only on how robots and other computer systems observe and acquire the environment (namely, by using computer vision) but also on how they internally represent, handle and depict that space.
