Dynamic machine vision requires recognizing the past and predicting the future of a moving object based on present vision. Current machine vision systems accomplish this by processing numerous image frames or using complex algorithms. Here, we report motion recognition and prediction in recurrent photomemristor networks. In our system, a retinomorphic photomemristor array, working as dynamic vision reservoir, embeds past motion frames as hidden states into the present frame through inherent dynamic memory. The informative present frame facilitates accurate recognition of past and prediction of future motions with machine learning algorithms. This in-sensor motion processing capability eliminates redundant data flows and promotes real-time perception of moving objects for dynamic machine vision.
