Abstract:

The overall goal is to define computational techniques to be used by a system in making a visual scan of a dynamic environment with which it is to interact. Here, both brain mechanisms in the visual systems of animals and humans and computer techniques for the analysis of color photographs of natural scenes are discussed. Schemes as a formalization of the systems knowledge units are presented. This notion is helpful for our work in both the BT Brain Theory and AI Artificial Intellgence approaches. Further specific studies--from their group and from elsewhere--of subsystems of both animal and computer visual systems are presented. The interaction of high-level processes with low-level systems, as part of a general emphasis on integrated system design are examined. Part II will focus on techniques for segmenting single static colored images.
