Perceptual organization offers an elegant framework to group low-level features that are likely to come from a single object. We offer a novel strategy to adapt this grouping process to objects in a domain. Given a set of training images of objects in context, the associated learning process decides on the relative importance of the basic salient relationships such as proximity, parallelness, continuity, junctions, and common region toward segregating the objects from the background. The parameters of the grouping process are cast as probabilistic specifications of Bayesian networks that need to be learned. This learning is accomplished using a team of stochastic automata in an N-player cooperative game framework. The grouping process, which is based on graph partitioning is able to form large groups from relationships defined over a small set of primitives and is fast. We statistically demonstrate the robust performance of the grouping and the learning frameworks on a variety of real images. Among the interesting conclusions is the significant role of photometric attributes in grouping and the ability to form large salient groups from a set of local relations, each defined over a small number of primitives
