• VISUAL PERCEPTION AND AI: AN ARTIST’S VIEW

      Berks, Robert; Berks, Dorothy M.; Halyoake Avenue (International Foundation for Telemetering, 1985-10)
      The creative process of the visual artist is an untapped source of knowledge-based systems which can extend the capabilities of AI in understanding how to develop new algorithms for space perception, pattern recognition, and data compression. This report focuses on the artist’s analysis of the multi-dimensional levels of unconscious, visual ideation which precede the conscious level of symbolic coding. interaction of all the senses is examined, as are the functions of gravity and time as the fundamental reference points for pattern recognition. An exercise in ‘Image Evoking’ is described. Recommendations are given for applications to future research in AI.
