Abstract : It is argued that for most objects in reasonably unconstrained domains previous representations in computer recognition will fail due to the great diversity of appearances of objects within their class. A chair is considered in some detail to illustrate the point. To overcome problems of object variability and other hurdles in recognition a novel type of representation is introduced. This encompasses not only the familiar spatial information but include data on the function and context of what being recognised. This approach is described and some ideas are given on a 'paper' or hypothetical implementation. (Author)
