Complex thin class, shape understanding, the reasoning process


In this paper the method of understanding of the concept complex thin object is presented. The proposed method of understanding the concept of the complex thin object is part of the shape understanding method developed by the author. The main novelty of the presented method is that the process of understanding is related to the visual concept represented as a symbolic name of the possible class of shapes and at each stage of the reasoning process that led to assigning of an examined object to one of the possible classes, novel processing methods are used. These methods are very efficient because they dealt with a very specific class of shapes. This method is implemented as a module of the shape understanding system (SUS) and tested on the broad classes of shapes. The system of shape understanding is able to perform different tasks of shape analysis and recognition based on the ability of the system to understand the different concepts of shape at the different levels of cognition. The system consists of different types of experts that perform different processing and reasoning tasks.
