As specify by the US Federal Glossary of telecommunication terms (FS-1037C)," brightness" should now be used only for non-quantitative references to physiological sensations and perceptions of light. A given target luminance can elicit different perceptions of brightness in different contexts; see, for example, white's illusion.

COMING SOON!

function y = brightness(red, green, blue)
% brightness: returns 1 if the color is light otherwise 0
% INPUT: RGB-value of the color (red, green, blue)
% OUTPUT: 0 or 1 (0 dark, 1 light)

% train set for various rgb-values and its brightness
% the set contains vectors with dimension 4x1
