Paper Abstract

Most animals use color and shape to recognize things in their worlds. Shapes are properties of objects inferable from their 2D images. Colors are spectral discriminants computed by their brains using data sensed in 2-4 broad, spectrally overlapping bands. So color is not an object property. Both shape and color combine to make discrimination work well. I will describe Artificial Color and then ways to recognize an Artificially colored image.
