Paper Abstract

This paper surveys some issues confronting the conception of models for general purpose vision systems. We draw parallels to requirements of human performance under visual transformations naturally occurring in the ecological environment. We argue that successful real world vision systems require a strong component of analogical reasoning. We propose a course of investigation into appropriate models, and illustrate some of these proposals by a simple example. Our study emphasizes the potential importance of isomorphic representations - models of image and scene which embed a metric of their respective spaces, and whose topological structure facilitates identification of scene descriptors that are invariant under viewing transformations.
