Computer Vision: A Plea for a Constructivist View
Computer vision is presented and discussed under two complementary views. The positivist view provides a formal background under which vision is approached as a problem-solving task. By contrast, the constructivist view considers vision as the opportunistic exploration of a realm of data. The former view is rather well supported by evidence in neurophysiology while the latter view rather relies on recent trends in the field of distributed and situated cognition. The notion of situated agent is presented as a way to design computer vision systems under a constructivist hypothesis. Various applications in the medical domain are presented to support the discussion.
