Paper Abstract

Based on mathematical interpretation of fundamental principles related to human visual perception in the case of contour as a general geometrical figure, it is proposed a procedure for class-prototype reconstruction from a limited number of contour-samples belonging to the class. The procedure itself comprises the ordering of given contour-samples into a sequence according to the criterion and value of their mutual distortion, defining adequate mathematical characteristic of distortion trend within the sequence and subsequent reconstruction of approximate class-prototype shape, that is refined afterward by taking into account the assumed property of prototype symmetry. Finally, a global structure of artificial neural system is presented, that could be capable to fulfill the described procedure.
