Salient and Multiple Illusory Surfaces

  title={Salient and Multiple Illusory Surfaces},
  author={Davi Geiger and Hsing-Kuo Kenneth Pao and Nava Rubin},
All illusory surface figures yield a perception of a surface occluding another one or the background. Occluded surfaces yield completion, a phenomena known as amodal completions. It is intriguing that for some images illusory surfaces are perceived, but not for other images (see figure 1). Also, illusory surfaces may have portions occluded. We aim to understand these phenomena. Our approach detects intensity edges and junctions. From the junctions we seek to find an optimal image organization… CONTINUE READING
