Feature-Driven Ambient Occlusion for Direct Volume Rendering [article]

2010 International Workshop on Volume Graphics, Proceedings of the  
This allows us to neglect inter-occlusions between features without losing the auto-occlusions that give cues on the shape of the considered features.  ...  Results show that our approach not only improves the visual quality of images compared to classical ambient occlusion, but it is also less parametersensitive, thus furthermore improving usability for every-day  ...  Phong shading is not always able to restitute the visual cues needed for good data interpretation, especially concerning the relative positions of objects.  ...

Deep convolutional networks do not classify based on global object shape

Nicholas Baker, Hongjing Lu, Gennady Erlikhman, Philip J. Kellman, Wolfgang Einhäuser
2018 PLoS Computational Biology  
In biological vision, shape is arguably the most important cue for recognition. We tested the role of shape information in DCNNs trained to recognize objects.  ...  Shape cues appeared to play some role in the classification of artifacts, but little or none for animals.  ...  Most of the top-choice responses seem bizarre for human perceivers, such as "web site" for goose, "oxygen mask" for otter, "can opener" for polar bear, and "chain" for fox.  ...
