Title:Prospects and problems in designing image oriented information systems
Author(s):Ray, Sylvian R.
Subject(s):Information systems
Image based information systems
Pattern recognition
Abstract:There are slowly maturing and growing about us today a number of techniques which are likely to have a very significant effect upon the implementation of information systems in the near future. One of these techniques is pictorial data handling and interpretation, which is a subclass of the general area called pattern recognition. Pictorial data processing first became volumetrically significant in the case of photographic output of synchrotron bubble chambers which now deliver several million photographs per year. More recently, a surge of interest has developed in automatic interpretation of biological, medical, and weather satellite pictorial data. The automatic scanning of microscopic slides for the purpose of identifying certain morphological characters is an example of a rather complex task in the area of biological/medical laboratory automation. Some new viewpoints have begun to emerge from the experience of grappling with large volume pictorial data handling problems.
