Complexity, Confusion, and Perceptual Grouping. Part II: Mapping Complexity

  title={Complexity, Confusion, and Perceptual Grouping. Part II: Mapping Complexity},
  author={Benoit Dubuc and Steven W. Zucker},
  journal={International Journal of Computer Vision},
Intermediate-level vision is central to form perception, and we outline an approach to intermediate-level segmentation based on complexity analysis. In this second of a pair of papers, we continue the focus on edge-element grouping, and the motivating example of an edge element inferred from an unknown image. Is this local edge part of a long curve, or part of a texture? If the former, which is the next element along the curve? If the latter, is the texture like a well-combed hair pattern, in… CONTINUE READING
