T he cross-depiction problem is that of recognising visual objects regardless of whether they are photographed , painted, drawn, etc. It is a potentially significant yet under-researched problem. Emulating the remarkable human ability to recognise objects in an astonishingly wide variety of depictive forms is likely to advance both the foundations and the(More)
Cross-depiction is the recognition—and synthesis—of objects whether they are photographed, painted, drawn, etc. It is a significant yet underresearched problem. Emulating the remarkable human ability to recognise and depict objects in an astonishingly wide variety of depictive forms is likely to advance both the foundations and the applications of computer(More)
We present a Bayesian approach to tactile object recognition that improves on state-of-the-art in using single-touch events in two ways. First by improving recognition accuracy from about 90% to about 95%, using about half the number of touches. Second by reducing the number of touches needed for training from about 200 to about 60. In addition, we use a(More)
This paper explores ways of combining vision and touch for the purpose of object recognition. In particular, it focuses on scenarios when there are few tactile training samples (as these are usually costly to obtain) and when vision is artificially impaired. Whilst machine vision is a widely studied field, and machine touch has received some attention(More)
