Current page: About ECVision->Definition of Cognitive Vision

A Cognitive Vision System can achieve the four levels of generic visual functionality:

  • Detection
  • Localization
  • Recognition
  • Understanding (role, context, purpose)
and exhibits purposive goal-directed behaviour, is adaptive to unforseen changes, and can anticipate the occurrence of objects and events. This is achieved through:
  • Learning semantic knowledge (form, function, & behaviours)
  • Retention of knowledge (about the cognitive system, its environment, and the relationship with the environment)
  • Deliberation about objects and events, including the cognitive system itself.
