This talk gives an introduction to my book, A Generative Theory of Shape (Springer-Verlag, 550pages). The purpose of the book is to develop a generative theory of shape that has two properties regarded as fundamental to intelligence - maximizing transfer of structure and maximizing recoverability of the generative operations. These two properties are particularly important in the representation of complex shape - which is the main concern of the book. The primary goal of the theory is the… CONTINUE READING
