Adaptive surface inspection via interactive evolution
ct 7 An increasingly frequent application of Machine Vision technologies is in automated surface inspection for the detection of defects in 8 manufactured products. Such systems offer significant benefits in terms of cost, detection rates, and user-satisfaction over conventional 9 human inspection systems. However, they usually require significant investment of expert time to set up, are ‘‘brittle’’ in the sense of 10 being highly specialised to the task for which they are tuned, and are consequently sensitive to changes in operating conditions or product 11 specifications. This raises problems within an industrial setting, where operating conditions or requirements may change, and the end12 users are experts in their manufacturing field, but not in image processing. 13 In this paper, we describe the development of a rapidly reconfigurable system in which the users’ tacit knowledge and requirements are 14 elicited via a process of Interactive Evolution, finding the im...
