Abstract

This paper discusses some problems that should be addressed by future object recognition systems.

In particular, there are things that we know how to do today, for example:
  1. 1.

    Computing the pose of a free-form three-dimensional object from its outline (e.g. [106]).

     
  2. 2.

    Identifying a polyhedral object from point and line features found in an image (e.g., [46, 89]).

     
  3. 3.

    Recognizing a solid of revolution from its outline (e.g., [59]).

     
  4. 4.

    Identifying a face with a fixed pose in a photograph (e.g., [10, 111]).
