Computational Structures For Machine Perception

by Fischler, Martin A.

Technical Note 233
Institution: AI Center, SRI International
Address: 333 Ravenswood Ave., Menlo Park, CA 94025
Jan 1981.

Note: This note is a summary of a talk given at the La Jolla Institute Workshop on Research Requirements for Advanced Computer Design (August 5-6, 1980). The purpose of this workshop was to identify important technical areas where radically new computer architectures might be necessary for future progress.

Abstract

This note discusses the adequacy of current computer architectures to serve as a base for building machine vision systems. Arguments are presented to show that perceptual problems cannot be completely formalized and dealt with in a closed abstract system. The conclusion is that the digital computer, organized as a general-purpose symbol processor, cannot serve as an adequate instrument for achieving a human-like visual capability.
