Paper Abstract

This paper describes a workstation and a software development environment designed to facilitate the investigation of integrated signal/symbol processing in image understanding and graphics processing. The workstation is comprised of two complementary, high-performance processors connected via a high-speed interface: the Pixar 2D Image computer and the Symbolics 36xx Lisp machine. Some of the current and potential applications of the system include developing and evaluating new image analysis and feature extraction algorithms, investigating the role of the extracted features in perceptual aggregation, object detection/identification and scene analysis, and assisting in the creation of prototypical image understanding systems.
