Humans are capable of rapidly classifying scenes by content, even when they are presented only very briefly. Classification accuracy can exceed 90%, while above-chance performance can be achieved in about 150ms. The global amplitude spectrum of an image has repeatedly been suggested to be a possible source of information for such fast classification. The aim of this thesis was to analyze the way in which humans classify images, specifically for the case of scenes which contain an animal or not… CONTINUE READING
