Abstract
Over the last 30 years, there have been steady and reasonably extensive R&D activities applied to the problem of interpreting image data automatically. The goal of much of this research has been directed either at automatic target recognition (ATR) or at the automation of the functions of intelligence image analysis. These efforts have greatly advanced our understanding of the nature of image content and what is necessary to describe it using computer algorithms. On the other hand, the goal of automatic interpretation of complex scenes and the recognition of targets in the presence of clutter and occlusion is still not formalized at the level of an engineering discipline. This paper reviews what the key issues are in achieving the automation of image understanding and provides examples of both success and still-unattainable interpretation capabilities.
