One of the important breakthroughs, image processing is the stand alone, non-human image understanding system (IUS). The task of understanding images becomes monumental as one tries to define what understanding really is. Both pattern recognition and artificial intelligence are used in addition to traditional signal processing. Scene analysis procedures using edge and texture segmentation can be considered as the early stages of image understanding process. Symbolic representation and… Expand
