Our perception of the world isn’t necessarily the most accurate, but rather the most beneficial for our survival.
By manipulating the context and rewards of visual tasks, researchers found that our visual perception, even at the retinal level, changes to maximize personal benefits.
This finding suggests that cognitive biases may not only affect our decision-making process but also alter our fundamental perception.
The results of this study may impact our understanding of human biases and also help refine AI perception algorithms.
