    The ATTENDING system is designed to critique a physician's preoperative plan for anesthetic management. In undertaking to critique a physician's plan, ATTENDING differs from other medical decision making systems, which in effect attempt to tell a physician what to do. ATTENDING's approach may prove more acceptable clinically, and may avoid certain social, medical, and medicolegal drawbacks. To cri... View full abstract»

  • Generating Object Descriptions for Model Retrieval

    A computer vision system is proposed, in which the recogni-tion of an object involves two interacting processes: model retrieval and model verification. The goal of the model retrieval process is to generate a proper structural description of the object in the input image, and use the description to retrieve candidate object models from the associative memory of the vision system. The present stud... View full abstract»

  • Parsing and Translation of (Attributed) Expansive Graph Languages for Scene Analysis

    In this paper, we suggest a class of (attributed) expansive graph grammars which generate languages contained in a graph family ¿. It turns out that by means of node renumbering using a very effi-cient algorithm, any graph in ¿ can be converted into a standard form, which enables the use of related string representation for that graph to facilitate the syntax analysis. As a consequence, the synt... View full abstract»

    Witkin proposed a maximum likelihood model for the recovery of surface orientation from image texture. We develop two efficient algorithms for solving this shape from texture problem and compare the results of these algorithms with the algorithm described in [1]. View full abstract»

    Considering the Hough transformation as a linear imaging process recasts certain well-known problems, provides a useful vocab-ulary, and possibly indicates a source of applicable literature on the behavior of the Hough transformation in various forms of noise. A consideration of the analytic form of peaks in parameter space sets the stage for the idea of using complementary (negative) votes to can... View full abstract»

    The requirements of three-dimensional scene analysis in support of vision driven robotic manipulation are such that direct range finding capabilities can greatly reduce the computational burden (time and complexity) for reliable determination of the placement and spatial extent of objects in the scene. This paper describes a laser time-of-flight range scanner capable of acquiring a reasonable rang... View full abstract»

    The problem of recognition of objects in images is investigated from the simultaneous viewpoints of image bandwidth compression and automatic target recognition. A scenario is suggested in which recognition is implemented on features in the block cosine transform domain which is useful for data compression as well. While most image frames would be processed by the automatic recognition algorithms ... View full abstract»

    A fractal curve first discussed by Giuseppe Peano has useful statistical properties in image processing. The curve can act as a transform between a line and n-dimensional space retaining some of the spatially associative properties of the space. Applications of the curve include multispectral image display, compression in the color and spa-tial domain, classification, and color display. The techni... View full abstract»

  • Chain Coding with a Hexagonal Lattice

    This paper investigates the performance of chain code quantization of general curves using a hexagonal lattice structure, as a means of improving efficiency over the standard square lattice. Performance is first computed theoretically, assuming a generalization of grid-intersect quantization, and the curve to be quantized is assumed to be a straight line. An algorithm is then developed to perform ... View full abstract»

  • Quad-Trees, Oct-Trees, and K-Trees: A Generalized Approach to Recursive Decomposition of Euclidean Space

    K-trees are developed as a K-dimensional analog of quad-trees and oct-trees. K-trees can be used for modeling K-dimensional data. A fast algorithm is given for finding the boundary size of a K-dimensional object represented by a K-tree. For K considered as con-stant; the algorithm provides a method for computing the perimeter of a quad-tree encoded image or the surface area of an oct-tree encoded ... View full abstract»

    This correspondence reviews the logical transform and pre-sents new theoretical and empirical developments. Novel extensions of the logical transform into spaces of three and four dimensions are de-scribed using the hexahedral and octahedral tessellations. These new tessellations are important in that they yield sufficiently compact neighborhoods to permit multidimensional cellular logic transform... View full abstract»

    Computer recognition of cursive handwriting is complisated by the lack of letter separation. In an attempt to gain insight on the cursive problem, the simpler problem of recognizing separated hand-written letters is addressed here. A warp-based character matching technique is employed with dictionary lookup, using a 16 000 word vocabulary. Cooperative users achieve high recognition accuracy with t... View full abstract»
