The five fundamental issues on visual knowledge are expression of visual knowledge, visual recognition, simulation of visual imagery thinking, learning of visual knowledge, and multiple expressions of knowledge. Our analysis shows that the distinct advantages of visual knowledge are its capacity to generate comprehensive imagery, its spatio-temporal evolution capacity and imagery display capacity. These are the features currently lacking in character knowledge and DNN. Integration of AI and CAD/CG/CV technologies will provide a vital foundation for the development of AI in terms of creation, prediction, and man-machine integration. The study of visual knowledge and multiple expressions of knowledge is the key to the development of visual intelligence and the main theory and technology to enable AI 2.0 to make major breakthroughs. It is a desolate, clammy, and fertile “Great Northern Wilderness,” but also a “depopulated land” full of hope and worthy of multi-disciplinary cooperation.



概要:认知心理学早已指出,人类知识记忆中的重要部分是视觉知识,被用来进行形象思维。因此,基于视觉的人工智能(AI)是AI绕不开的课题,且具有重要意义。本文继《论视觉知识》一文,讨论与之相关的5个基本问题:(1)视觉知识表达;(2)视觉识别;(3)视觉形象思维模拟;(4)视觉知识的学习;(5)多重知识表达。视觉知识的独特优点是具有形象的综合生成能力,时空演化能力和形象显示能力。这些正是字符知识和深度神经网络所缺乏的。AI与计算机辅助设计/图形学/视觉的技术联合将在创造、预测和人机融合等方面对AI新发展提供重要的基础动力。视觉知识和多重知识表达的研究是发展新的视觉智能的关键,也是促进AI 2.0取得重要突破的关键理论与技术。这是一块荒芜、寒湿而肥沃的"北大荒",也是一块充满希望值得多学科合作勇探的"无人区"。
