Perceptual organization using Bayesian networks

  title={Perceptual organization using Bayesian networks},
  author={Sudeep Sarkar and Kim L. Boyer},
We show that the formalism of Bayesian networks provides an elegant solution, in a probabilistic frame,work, to the problem of integrating top down and bottorii up visual processes as well serving as a knowledge base. W e modify the formal i sm t o handle spatial data a n d thus extend the applicability of Bayesian networks to visual processing. W e call the modified f o r m the Perceptual Inference Network (PIN). W e present the theoretical background of a PIN and demonstrate i ts viability i… CONTINUE READING
