Computer Vision Markup Language

Thor List, Robert Fisher

We propose an XML-based Computer Vision Markup Language for use in Cognitive Vision, to enable separate research groups to collaborate with each other as well as making their research results more available to other areas of science and industry, without having to reveal any proprietary ideas, algorithms or even software. The Computer Vision Markup Language can communicate any type and amount of information, making unavailable functionality accessible to anyone. In this paper we introduce the language and describe how we have implemented it in a very large cognitive vision project. We provide a free open source library for working with this language, which can easily be implemented into existing code providing seamless network communication abilities and multi-platform support. Last we describe the future of CVML and how it might evolve to include other areas of research.
