This is the final technical report for a Bionics Image Recognition System. This report provides a description of a learning device which can be used to seek and test for an optimum discrimination value between two planar geometric shapes placed on 35 mm slide transparencies. The slide image shape-information is transformed from a function of two independent variables into a function of a single independent variable. Specific values of the transformed image shape-information are used to determine the best value for discriminating between any two images. After this operation, the device is capable of classifying additional planar geometric shapes as being similar to one or neither of the original two shapes which were discriminated.
