Paper Abstract

Application of visual image defocusing is illustrated as a technique for generalization, recognition and control. Specifically, formation of generalized images of objects by using a set of elementary patterns is described. This 'geometric alphabet' is created by two basic figures: a stripe and round spot. It is known from physiology that these figures produce response in special cells of the visual cortex of living organisms. Boolean algebra (Venn's diagrams) is used to obtain 'letters' and generalized images ('geometrical words') by computer simulation. The results of physical and computer experiments are given. A diagram of an anthropomorphic robot is presented together with model experiments on 'drawing' generalized images.
