Great approaches to natural image segmentation have been made in recent years by learning from human segmentations, however little attention is paid to the behavior of human subjects in segmenting images. The paper investigates the effort made by human subjects and proposes an empirical method to estimate the boundary tracing loads, then establishes a model for natural image segmentation based on the least effort principle. We sort the hierarchies exhibited in human segmentation processes which… CONTINUE READING
