Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Experiments on the use of the creation machine of the syntactic-semantic approach to locate airplanes on aerial photos is presented. The basic concepts and formulations of the syntactic-semantic approach are reviewed. The peculiarity of locating airplanes from aerial photos is discussed. Experimental results are shown. The creation machine is a procedure which can assemble the desired objects-from a chaos of fragments of the desired object and the noise object.
