Classification and Computer Generation of Necktie Patterns

Is it possible to create a simple computerised system to cover all characteristics of necktie patterns – and that can also generate patterns similar to existing neckties? Researchers Hiroshi Fukuda, Tomoko Saito and Gisaku Nakamura of the School of Administration and Informatics, University of Shizuoka, Shizuoka-shi, Shizuoka 422, Japan – as far back as 1994* – said the answer is yes.

They presented their evidence in a paper for the journal Forma, Vol. 9 (No. 1), pp. 67-72, entitled ‘Classification and Computer Generation of Necktie Patterns

A full copy of their paper may be found here.

*Note: Improbable has not (so far) been able to find any published details of post-1994 work on computer classification of necktie patterns.
