Abstract

This paper describes an experimental comparison which has been made between two alternative methods of image classification; one based on a neural network and the other on a rule-based expert system. Both methods were applied to the same image data. The results show that both methods give useful performance improvements in comparison with more traditional parametric classifiers. It was also found that the performance level attained by the two approaches was approximately the same. The neural network was, however, faster to develop although the expert system was much more transparent and easier for a user to understand.
