Steps Towards Cognitive Vision

Anthony G. Cohn, Ph.D., University of Leeds

To build an autonomous cognitive agent is a very challenging goal. Crucial to the ultimate attainment of this aim is an ability to perceive, understand, formulate hypotheses and act based on the agent’s perceptions. I will discuss work undertaken at Leeds in pursuit of this goal. A key focus of our work is to integrate quantitative and qualitative modes of representation and to learn as much as possible of any domain specific models required to understand and operate in a specific situation. As one example of our approach, I will show how functional object categories can be learned by mining qualitative spatio-temporal models of behaviour.
