Abstract
WHILE THE POWER OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED, IT IS ESSENTIALLY UNTAPPED REGARDING IMAGE EXPLOITATION. OUR PROJECT IS INTENDED TO ADDRESS THIS PRESSING PROBLEM; ITS SIGNIFICANCE CAN BE EVIDENCED FROM TWO CRITERIA: (1) INNOATIVENESS: OUR METHODS DE PART SIGNIFICANTLY UPON THE CONVENTIONAL IMAGE PROCESSING TECHNIQUES, AND (2) DIRECT CONTRIBUTION TO RADC: THE RESULTS WILL IMPROVE SIGNIFICANTLY THE EXISTING CAPABILITY. TO PROVE THESE TWO POINTS, WE WILL ACCOMPLISH FOUR TASKS: (1) TO DEMONSTRATE THAT OUR AI APPROACHES ARE MUCH BETTER THAN THE EXISTING METHODOLOGIES FROM BOTH THEORETICAL AND EXPERIMENTAL CONSIDERATIONS; (2) TO IDENTIFY VERY DIFFICULT FEATURE CAPTURING PROBLEMS THAT HAVE TO BE OVERCOME BEFORE CONSIDERING RULE-BASED FEATURE IDENTIFICATION EFFORT; (3) TO DEMOSTRATE A COMBINED RADC/SR & E IMAGE EXPLOITATION CAPABILITY AND THUS PROVE THAT A NEARLY OPERATIONAL AI SYSTEM IS ALREADY AVAILABLE; AND (4) TO DEVELOP A STRATEGIC PLAN FOR DEVELOPING ADVANCED PROCESSORS FOR SOLVING VERY DIFFICULT PROBLEMS USING THE CONCEPT OF IMAGE HIERARCY. THESE WILL BE ACCOMPLISHED BY USING A "FOOTBALL GAME MODEL:" FEATURE EXTRACTION IS ACHIEVED BY SUCCESSIVE FEATURE CAPTURING (EVERY 10 YARDS) UNTIL IDENTIFICATION IS DONE (A TOUCHDOWN); AI PROCESSORS ARE USED TO ACHIEVE AND ASSIST THAT PROCESS, FOR LATTER AS A GUIDANCE SYSTEM.
