Perceptual Grouping by Selection of a Logically Minimal Model

  title={Perceptual Grouping by Selection of a Logically Minimal Model},
  author={Jacob Feldman},
  journal={International Journal of Computer Vision},
This paper presents a logic-based approach to grouping and perceptual organization, called Minimal Model theory, and presents efficient methods for computing interpretations in this framework. Grouping interpretations are first defined as logical structures, built out of atomic qualitative scene descriptors (“regularities”) that are derived from considerations of non-accidentalness. These interpretations can then be partially ordered by their degree of regularity or constraint (measured… CONTINUE READING
