Abstract : In this paper the author considers both vision and speech in the hope that a unified treatment, illustrating the similarities, would lead to a better appreciation of the problems, and possibly programs which use the same superstructure. The author postulates a general perceptual system and illustrate how various existing systems either avoid or ignore some of the difficult problems that must be considered by a general perceptual system. The purpose of this paper is to point out some of the unsolved problems, and to suggest some heuristics that reflect environmental, syntactic, and probabilistic constraints useful in visual and speech perception by machine.
