Paper Abstract

The fractal transform is a recently developed tool for image analysis and pattern recognition. Problems relating to pixel based image resolution are highlighted. The fractal transform is outlined and shown to be a solution to pixel based image resolution related problems. MatchMaker, a technique based on fractal transform analysis is analyzed and its ability to find objects in complex scenes is confirmed. A new neural network paradigm, called the fractal transform network, is described. Built from neural network elements commonly described in the classic neural network literature, it is shown that this new paradigm can implement the MatchMaker technique and other fractal transform processes as highly parallel networks.
