QJF Lectures on the occasion of 10th Anniversary of St.
Jadwiga Queen, Melbourne
QJF lectures were inspired by
St. Jadwiga’s attempts to propagate the newest scientific achievements of
her epoch in her court life as well as for polish nation (her subjects).
Those lectures focus on the newest scientific research carried out in the
Queen Jadwiga Research Institute of Understanding and presented in the new
book being prepared for publication in Springer-Verlag.
LECTURE 1: The University of Melbourne, Australia

Tuesday, 01 May 2007, 12.00pm – 1.00pm, Theatre 3 (2.05)
ICT Building, 111 Barry St., Carlton,
This talk was based on the
book prepared for the Springer-Verlag. In this talk the new results of the
research on visual understanding were be presented. Short description of
the visual understanding method that was based on the shape categories and
categories of the visual object, was given. The basic terms of the proposed
method were briefly described and a new method of the categorical learning
was presented. The shape categories that were used by the shape
understanding system (SUS) in the visual
reasoning and visual thinking to obtain visual description of the perceived
object were presented in the context of the reasoning process. The
reasoning process utilizes shape categories to find the interpretation of
the object in terms of the object categories. The object category that is
represented by the categorical chain supplies knowledge needed in naming
process. The named object is further interpreted based on the knowledge
supplied by the knowledge object. The method of the analogical reasoning
that was based on the categorical chain was described and connection with
visual understanding and visual thinking were briefly discussed.
Application of the new method in solving the visual IQ test and selected
problems were also presented.
