Abstract : Vision by man or machine is the construction of useful symbolic descriptions from images of the world. Studies of the human visual system provide valuable insights into the kinds of descriptions that will be the most useful, but little insight into the computational problems involved in deriving and manipulating these descriptions. This research examines several computational problems associated with aspects of two- and three-dimensional vision. The solution to these problems includes the design and implementation of particular algorithms. Their efficiency and flexibility is compared with that of the human visual processor. Keywords: Image understanding, visual pattern recognition, biological information processing.
