This chapter introduces us to the new area of Evolutionary Computer Vision. After a brief statement about the complexity of visual processing in humans, the chapter focuses on the challenge of recreating such abilities within a seeing machine. The introduction serves to formulate the process of image formation through the concept of a graph of a function. Later, the main motivation for writing this book is provided, emphasizing the approach that has been used at the EvoVisión laboratory during the last decade. This section has the aim of sharing the methodology that is used in many research laboratories across the world. Finally, the chapter ends with a brief overview about the material covered in this book.
