Picture Interpretation: A Symbolic Approach
by S. Dance, Z.Q. Liu, T.M. Caelli
Publisher: World Scientific 1995
Explores a method for symbolically intrepreting images based upon a parallel implementation of a network-of-frames to describe intelligent processing. The system has been implemented in an object-oriented environment in the logic programming language Parlog++.
