Note: SRI Project 1187. Proceedings Second International Joint Conference on Pattern Recognition, Lyngby-Copenhagen, Denmark, August 1974. The research reported herein was primarily sponsored by the Office of Naval Research under Contract N00014-71-C-0294. Additional support was provided by the Advanced Research Projects Agency under Contract DAHC04-72-C-0008, and NASA Contract NASW-2086.
This paper summarizes initial progress in developing a computer system that can be rapidly programmed to analyze any class of pictorial scenes. Scene analysis programs have been awkward to develop using conventional programming systems because of the difficulty of formulating pictorial descriptions in symbolic terms. Picture processing techniques are inherently ad hoc and must be deduced empirically for each application. We have constructed an interactive system specifically designed for expressing and experimenting with perceptual strategies.
