Modeling experiential knowledge with procedural schemata of holistic perception

Knowledge Representation
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 313)


We examine the nature of procedural and progressive formal description schemata of human perception of resemblance, and we present algorithmic procedures for interactive modeling.
