Supervised Learning of Descriptions for Image Recognition Purposes
January 1994 (vol. 16 no. 1)
pp. 92-98

This study deals with a learning system for generation of descriptions of objects to be recognized in 2-D images. After proposing a framework for handling fuzzy and relational descriptions, we present the system obtained by making such a framework manage a well-known learning methodology. Satisfactory results and comparisons are reported.
