Humans can recognize the gist of a novel image in a single glance, independent of its complexity. How is this remarkable feat accomplished? On the basis of behavioral and computational evidence, this paper describes a formal approach to the representation and the mechanism of scene gist understanding, based on scene-centered, rather than object-centered primitives. We show that the structure of a scene image can be estimated by the mean of global image features, providing a statistical summary… CONTINUE READING
