Paper Abstract

A new concept of Neural Network-Aided Design (NN-AD) is presented. It is a hierarchical approach consisting of several concatenated stages of visual information processing that are designed by training neural networks (NN). Thus, NN-AD can be viewed as a general tool for the design of special filters in accordance with the specific task of image processing under consideration. The nonlinear filters are formatted by a supervised presentation of a proper set of input-output patterns. The principles of NN-AD design are illustrated by the examples of edge detection with subpixel resolution and of orientational processing for edge enhancement. The proposed NN-AD approach is found to be very robust with regard to various types of errors.
