Abstract:

The Image Understanding Program is planned to be a five year research effort to develop the technology required for automatic and semiautomatic interpretation and analysis of military photographs and related images. This program, now in its second year of Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency DARPA Sponsorship, was initially funded in 1976. This document contains papers submitted by various research personnel working on projects in the Image Understanding Program. These papers were presented on April 20, 1977 at the fifth Image Understanding Workshop held in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The purpose of the workshop was to enable various program researchers to present interesting technical accomplishments achieved during the past six months. The status of each of the diverse projects including future research plans and goals were also agenda objectives. In this way, by stimulating cross-fertilization discussions, it was hoped to assist community-wide understanding of the individual research efforts. Since the participants included personnel from the military research and development community, as well as representatives from interested user organizations, the workshop served as a means to provide a dialogue between researcher and user. Such information exchange is considered a must by DARPA management in order to facilitate technology transfers.
