Abstract:

The operation of the visual portion of the human brain has been simulated on the IBM-1620 and IBM-7094 digital computers. The simulation is designed using the cross-correlation method postulated by Dr. Kabrisky. The simulation is very coarse as the grain size of the visual area of the human brain is four hundred times finer than the computer model. The model stores new patterns, standardizes pattern sizes, rotates the input pattern and recognizes identical or similar patterns. The model is evaluated by inserting twenty test patterns. The model did seem to simulate the human visual recognition system for these input patterns. The model will recognize patterns that are reduced, enlarged, shifted, or rotated. After analyzing the satisfactory results recommendations are made for the design of larger and more intricate models. The computer programs and sample results are included in the Appendixes. Author
