One common perceptual grouping cue that can facilitate this objective is the cue of contour closure, reflecting the spatial coherence of objects in the world and their projections as closed boundaries separating figure from background. Detecting contour closure in images consists of finding a cycle of disconnected contour fragments that separates an object from its background. Searching the entire… CONTINUE READING
