Expanding Asa H's ontology
As a part of Asa H's initial ontology (see blogs of 14 and 16 Feb. 2013 and 12 March 2013) I used some preprocessor modules to recognize (and define) characters (e.g., letters and numerals). I have begun to develop (sometimes "train") similar modules to recognize/define various objects and features. These modules can either try to recognize an input (frequently an image) obtained at a single instant in time or a sequence of inputs obtained over a (typically short) time period. Time varying input is needed where an action is being defined. A human can also serve as the "preprocessor", perhaps on a temporary basis. Asa H can also ask for human advice if it is unsure of what it's own preprocessor is seeing. Not all of these preprocessors are being added to the same Asa H agent. Rather, I am developing a number of individual "specialists."
