  • A Computational Approach to Edge Detection

    This paper describes a computational approach to edge detection. The success of the approach depends on the definition of a comprehensive set of goals for the computation of edge points. These goals must be precise enough to delimit the desired behavior of the detector while making minimal assumptions about the form of the solution. We define detection and localization criteria for a class of edge... View full abstract»

  • On Detecting Edges

    An edge in an image corresponds to a discontinuity in the intensity surface of the underlying scene. It can be approximated by a piecewise straight curve composed of edgels, i.e., short, linear edge-elements, each characterized by a direction and a position. The approach to edgel-detection here, is to fit a series of one-dimensional surfaces to each window (kernel of the operator) and accept the s... View full abstract»

  • Binocular Image Flows: Steps Toward Stereo-Motion Fusion

    The analyses of visual data by stereo and motion modules have typically been treated as separate parallel processes which both feed a common viewer-centered 2.5-D sketch of the scene. When acting separately, stereo and motion analyses are subject to certain inherent difficulties; stereo must resolve a combinatorial correspondence problem and is further complicated by the presence of occluding boun...

  • One-Eyed Stereo: A General Approach to Modeling 3-D Scene Geometry

    A single two-dimensional image is an ambiguous representation of the three-dimensional world-many different scenes could have produced the same image-yet the human visual system is ex-tremely successful at recovering a qualitatively correct depth model from this type of representation. Workers in the field of computational vision have devised a number of distinct schemes that attempt to emulate th... View full abstract»

    This paper relates different kinds of language modeling methods that can be applied to the linguistic decoding part of a speech recognition system with a very large vocabulary. These models are studied experimentally on a pseudophonetic input arising from French stenotypy. We propose a model which combines the advantages of a statistical modeling with information theoretic tools, and those of a gr... View full abstract»

  • Determining Object Translation Information Using Stereoscopic Motion

    Stereoscopic motion is an approach for comparing image change due to motion in a stereo pair of image sequences. Qualitatively, the relative image change shows that an object point is approaching, receding, or remaining at constant depth. Quantitatively, the relative change predicts where the object point will pass with respect to the camera system. View full abstract»

  • A Method for the Analysis of Ambiguous Segmentations of Images

    In this correspondence we are interested in how interpretation and context restrictions can guide the analysis of ambiguous segmentations of images in computer vision systems. The final objective is to find image segments that can be interpreted (classified) such that their interpretations do not conflict with interpretations given to related segments. In the case that we have several possible lab... View full abstract»

  • A Fast k Nearest Neighbor Finding Algorithm Based on the Ordered Partition

    We propose a fast nearest neighbor finding algorithm, named tentatively an ordered partition, based on the ordered lists of the training samples of each projection axis. The ordered partition contains two properties, one is ordering-to bound the search region, and the other is partitioning-to reject the unwanted samples without actual distance computations. It is proved that the proposed algorithm... View full abstract»
