Automated learning of rules using genetic operators
The configuration system CONNY permits the automated configuration of image analysis processes which includes the selection of the appropriate sequence of operators and the adaptation of the free parameters. The system uses explicitly formulated knowledge contents from a human image analysis expert coded as rules of a rule based system. In the present contribution it has been investigated if and to which extent the rules can be learned automatically. The approach which has been chosen is based on the selection and valuation of individual rules and on the manipulation and generation of new rules by the use of genetic operators. The advantageous capabilities of a learning approach using genetic operators is demonstrated.
