When tting models to data containing multiple structures, such as when tting surface patches to data taken from a neighborhood that includes a range discontinuity, robust esti-mators must tolerate both gross outliers and pseudo outliers. Pseudo outliers are outliers to the structure of interest, but inliers to a diierent structure. They diier from gross outliers because of their coherence. Such data occurs frequently in computer vision problems, including motion estimation, model tting and… CONTINUE READING
