9780124448162: Artificial Vision: Image Description, Recognition, and Communication (Signal Processing and its Applications)

Artificial Vision is a rapidly growing discipline, aiming to build computational models of the visual functionalities in humans, as well as machines that emulate them. Visual communication in itself involves a numberof challenging topics with a dramatic impact on contemporary culture where human-computer interaction and human dialogue play a more and more significant role.

This state-of-the-art book brings together carefully selected review articles from world renowned researchers at the forefront of this exciting area. The contributions cover topics including image processing, computational geometry, optics, pattern recognition, and computer science. The book is divided into three sections. Part I covers active vision; Part II deals with the integration of visual with cognitive capabilities; and Part III concerns visual communication.

Artificial Vision will be essential reading for students and researchers in image processing, vision, and computer science who want to grasp the current concepts and future directions of this challenging field.

This state-of-the-art book brings together selected review articles and accounts of current projects from world-renowned researchers at the forefront of this exciting area. The contributions cover topics such as:

  • Psychology of perception
  • Image processing
  • Computational geometry
  • Visual knowledge representation and languages

It is this truly multi-disciplinary approach that has produced successful theories and applications for the subject.

From the Back Cover:

Artificial vision is a rapidly growing discipline, aiming to build computational models of the visual capabilites in humans, as well as the machines that emulate them. Recent research work suggests that vision is a complex functionality, involving active sensing and attentional mechanisms, and is strictly related to cognitive processes like learning, reasoning and communicating. Visual communication in itself has a dramatic impact on contemporary culture, where human-computer interaction and human dialogue via computers play a more and more significant role.

Artificial Vision is a book which will be essential reading for students and researchers in applied computer science, pattern recognition, artificial intelligence and vision, who want to grasp the concepts and directions of this challenging field.
