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.
Audience: Advanced Undergraduates, graduates, researchers in image processing, vision and computer science.
