Paper Abstract

Work is underway on a rule—based expert system as the basis of an intelligent user interface for detecting arbitrary 2D shapes in images using mathematical morphology. This work builds on work done at the Ecole des Mines,1 and at the University of Washington,2 and is applicable to a wide range of vision tasks, including arbitrary shape detection, separation and segmentation problems. We address these tasks by defining an intermediate lexicon of 2D shape detection tasks, that can be carried out using the primitive operations of mathematical morphology. The expert system carries out a rule-based consultation with the user in order to express his vision task in terms of this lexicon. The graphical user interface prompts the user with textual or graphical menus, and at the end of the consultation, the system then generates the sequence of operations needed to accomplish the task.
