Abstract:

THE MAIN OBJECTIVE OF OUR WORK IS TO PRODUCE A PORTABLE, EXTENDABLE, AND MACHINE INDEPENDENT IMAGE UNDERSTANDING ENVIRONMENT. THESE ARE ESSENTIAL QUALITIES TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF ONGOING DEVELOPMENTS IN HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE. TO ACHIEVE THIS, WE WILL TRANSFER AN ADVANCED AND POWERFUL IMAGE UNDERSTANDING ENVIRONMENT FROM THE SYMBOLICS LISP MACHINE TO MAC IIS AND NEXT MACHINES. WE WILL UTILIZE THE GENERIC SOFTWARE INTERFACES, CO-PROCESSOR EXTENDABILITY, AND DIVERSE SOFTWARE BASE ASSOCIATED WITH BOTH OF THESE TARGET MACHINES. THE ENVIRONMENT ITSELF IS WELL SUITED TO THIS TRANSFER DUE TO IT'S MODULAR DESIGN, SMALL NUMBER OF COMPONENTS, AND USE OF OBJECT-ORIENTED PROGRAMMING METHODOLOGY. THIS ENVIRONMENT WILL SUPPORT THE WORK AND COMMUNICATION OF TWO RELATED DARPA SPONSORED COMMUNITIES: IMAGE UNDERSTANDING (IU) RESEARCHERS AND THE DEVELOPERS OF IMAGE UNDERSTANDING APPLICATIONS FOR MILITARY, INDUSTRIAL, AND COMMERCIAL USES. IT PROVIDE A POWDERFUL, COMMON BASIS FOR TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER AND INTEGRATION ACROSS THESE TWO COMMUNITIES.
