VSS 2018 – Shape scission: causal segmentation of shape

Warts, cracks, causal shape segmentation. Research on shape perception usually focuses on the estimation of local surface geometry through cues like stereopsis, shading, or texture. Here, we argue that observers use these shape estimates to infer other object… Read More Continue reading
