Unsupervised over-segmentation of an image into super-pixels is a common preprocessing step for image parsing algorithms. Superpixels are used as both regions of support for feature vectors and as a starting point for the final segmentation. Recent algorithms that construct superpixels that conform to a regular grid (or superpixel lattice) have used greedy(More)
Unsupervised over-segmentation of an image into super-pixels is a common preprocessing step for image parsing algorithms. Superpixels are used as both regions of support for feature vectors and as a starting point for the final segmentation. In this paper we investigate incorporating a priori information into superpixel segmentations. We learn a(More)
Image parsing remains difficult due to the need to combine local and contextual information when labeling a scene. We approach this problem by using the epitome as a prior over label configurations. Several properties make it suited to this task. First, it allows a condensed patch-based representation. Second, efficient E-M based learning and inference(More)
Detection of natural boundaries is a fundamental problem in computer vision but evaluation of boundary detection performance has tended to concentrate on images with low scene complexity. Importantly, recent boundary detection analysis [7] shows that performance on scenes with higher scene complexity is low. However, work in [6] has shown that for datasets(More)
Unsupervised over-segmentation of an image into super-pixels is a common preprocessing step for image parsing algorithms. Ideally, every pixel within each superpixel region will belong to the same real-world object. Existing algorithms generate superpixels that forfeit many useful properties of the regular topology of the original pixels: for example, the n(More)
