Abstract : The paper presents a unified view of the research in machine perception of speech and vision in the hope that a clear appreciation of similarities and differences may lead to better information-processing models of perception. Various factors that affect the feasibility and performance of perception systems are discussed. To illustrate the current state of the art in machine perception, examples are chosen from the HEARSAY speech understanding system and the image processing portion of the SYNAPS neural modelling system. Some unsolved problems in a few key areas are presented. (Author)
