Layers "Recognition Cone" Networks That Pre-Process, Classify, and Describe
This paper gives a brief overview of six types of pattern recognition programs that (1) pre-process, then characterize, (2) pre-process and characterize together, (3) pre-process and characterize into a "recognition cone", (4) describe as well as name, (5) compose interrelated descriptions, and (6) converse. A computer program (of types 3 through 6) is presented that transforms and characterizes the input scene through the successive layers of a recognition cone, and then engages in a stylized conversation, to describe the scene.
