Recognition-by-components: a theory of human image understanding.

  • 1 April 1987
TLDR
Recognition-by-components (RBC) provides a principled account of the heretofore undecided relation between the classic principles of perceptual organization and pattern recognition. Expand
Dynamic binding in a neural network for shape recognition.
TLDR
A neural network is presented that generates a viewpoint-invariant structural description specifying the object's parts and the relations among them and uses synchrony to parse images into their constituent parts. Expand
Scene perception: Detecting and judging objects undergoing relational violations
TLDR
Results provide converging evidence that semantic relations can be accessed from the results of a single fixation and were available sufficiently early during the time course of scene perception to affect the perception of the objects in the scene. Expand
Recognizing depth-rotated objects: Evidence and conditions for three-dimensional viewpoint invariance.
Five experiments on the effects of changes of depth orientation on (a) priming the naming of briefly flashed familiar objects, (b) matching individual sample volumes (geons), and (c) classifyingExpand
Surface versus edge-based determinants of visual recognition
TLDR
Although differences in surface characteristics such as color, brightness, and texture can be instrumental in defining edges and can provide cues for visual search, they play only a secondary role in the real-time recognition of an intact object when its edges can be readily extracted. Expand
Perceiving Real-World Scenes
TLDR
An object's meaningful context may affect the course of perceptual recognition and not just peripheral scanning or memory. Expand

Priming contour-deleted images: Evidence for intermediate representations in visual object recognition
TLDR
The results suggest that the locus of object priming may be at changes in the weight matrix for a geon assembly layer, where units have self-organized to represent combinations of convex or singly concave components (or geons) and their attributes (e.g., aspect ratio, orientation, and relations with other geons such as TOP-OF).

Neurocomputational bases of object and face recognition.

  • 29 August 1997
TLDR
Evidence from object recognition indicates strong invariance to these values, even when distinguishing among objects that are as similar as faces, as shown by Hummel & Biederman. Expand
Human image understanding: recent research and a theory
The perceptual recognition of objects is conceptualized to be a process in which the image of the input is segmented at regions of deep concavity into simple volumetric components, such as blocks,Expand
