TITLE: Color Deficient see this way .. or don’t they?
Abstract: Color deficient vision has been studied for more than 200 years and we have built models that simulate color deficiency for a color normal observer. But is this really how a color deficient person sees ? Or is there more to the human experience of “vision” than we include in our models ? This talk will take a look at our understanding of color deficiency and show areas that can not easily be explained within current assumptions. As such, this talk tries more to establish a new look into the problem area than it tries to be a summary of the “as is”.
