Image Understanding

"Image understanding (IU) is the research area concerned with the design and experimentation of computer systems that integrate explicit models of a visual problem domain with one or more methods for extracting features from images and one or more methods for matching features with models using a control structure. Given a goal, or a reason for looking at a particular scene, these systems produce descriptions of both the images and the world scenes that the images represent."
