Title:Quasi-Invariant Iconic Object Recognition
Date: 1994
Abstract:This dissertation documents work towards a model of the iconic image matching system. it is hypothesized that iconic matching is one of two main visual recognition systems employed by human beings. It is the process of matching the image on the retina against a stored model image. To accomplish this various processes are employed: a multi-scale representation to facilitate size constancy; multiple representations (intensity, edge and corner images); a saccading process to direct the point of fixation towards interesting locations and a matching system. The system, so far, has only been tested on a small database of artificially generated test images but it should be possible to extend this in future.
