Paper Abstract

We present the results of a study of the plausibility of inverting the image analysis done in the human visual system. We examine the arguments for such inversion in recall and visual imagery, and look at the requirements for creating imagery by inverting one or multiple layers of function in neural nets. We then show how such a reversal of visual system processing can take place in stages, or all at once. This is done by means of finite Radon transforms on certain geometries, and we examine the possibility that such situations exist in the human visual system. We create a dual system to certain feed forward network models of visual processing, and show its application to such processing, and to non-image processing applications.
