Overview

This book considers computer vision to be an integral part of the artificial intelligence system. The core of the book is an analysis of possible approaches to the creation of artificial vision systems, which simulate human visual perception. Much attention is paid to the latest achievements in visual psychology and physiology, the description of the functional and structural organization of the human perception mechanism, the peculiarities of artistic perception and the expression of reality. Computer vision models based on these data are investigated. They include the processes of external data analysis, internal environmental model synthesis, and the generating of behavioristic responses based on external and internal models comparison. Computer vision system evolution resulting from environmental effects is also considered. A unique feature of this book is the authors' use of black and white, and colour prints of traditional and contemporary Russian art to illustrate their principal theses. In doing so, they introduce the reader to a particularly Russian view of the world.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A thorough survey of the functional and structural organization of human visual perception, from the perspective of applying such insights to computer vision, considered as an integral part of an artificial intelligence system. Dozens of drawings, and 22 brilliant color plates reproduce Russian works of art. The nontechnical text might well be as much of interest to art critics and psychologists as to computer scientists. Translated from the Russian. Acidic paper. Paper edition (unseen), $22. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
