Abstract
THIS PROJECT WILL DEMONSTRATE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF A NEW APPROACH TO THE TRANSFER OF TECHNOLOGY IN IMAGE UNDERSTANDING (IU). IT IS BASED UPON THE USE OF A SHARED SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT ENVIRONMENT FOR IU, CALLED THE KBVISION (TM) SYSTEM, WHICH CAN SERVE TO EASE THE TRANSFER OF COMPUTER VISION ALGORITHMS. THE PHASE I PROPOSAL WILL DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF THE TRANSFER OF IU SOFTWARE BY SHARING SOME ALGORITHMS BETWEEN A FEW INSTITUTIONS. EACH ALGORITHM WILL BE RECODED, CAREFULLY DOCUMENTED, PROVIDED WITH A CLEAN GRAPHIC USER INTERFACE TO A SET OF KEY PARAMETERS FOR CONTROLLING THE ALGORITHM, AND THEN DISTRIBUTED TO A SET OF PARTICIPATING INSTITUTIONS. THIS INITIAL EFFORT WILL INVOLVE PORTING SOFTWARE DEVELOPED AT CARNEGIEMELLON UNIVERSITY WITH THE COOPERATION OF PROFESSOR TAKEO TANADE. THE PHASE II EFFORT WILL INITIATE A BROADER EFFORT ACROSS THE DARPA IU COMMUNITY.
