    We describe the challenge of combining continuous computer vision techniques and qualitative, symbolic methods to achieve a system capable of cognitive vision. Key to a truly cognitive system, is the ability to learn: to be able to build and use models constructed autonomously from sensory input. In this paper we overview a number of steps we have taken along the route to the construction of such a system, and discuss some remaining challenges.
