Symmetry Perception by Deep Networks: Inadequacy of Feed-Forward Architectures and Improvements with Recurrent Connections [article]

Shobhita Sundaram, Darius Sinha, Matthew Groth, Tomotake Sasaki, Xavier Boix
2022 arXiv   pre-print
Symmetry is omnipresent in nature and perceived by the visual system of many species, as it facilitates detecting ecologically important classes of objects in our environment.  ...  In this paper, we evaluate Deep Neural Network (DNN) architectures on the task of learning symmetry perception from examples.  ...  Evidently, more investigation of generalizable detection of symmetry in natural images is needed.  ...

A test of receiver perceptual performance: European starlings' ability to detect asymmetry in a naturalistic trait

John P. Swaddle, Douglas A. Ruff, Laura C. Page, Alicia M. Frame, Victoria A. Long
2008 Animal Behaviour  
Through a series of operant learning trials, we trained starlings to discriminate symmetry from an initially large asymmetry (50% relative asymmetry in the position and number of dots) and then reduced  ...  We discuss this limit in light of natural plumage asymmetries and conclude that most individuals in a wild population would probably be perceived as equally 'symmetric', rendering FA in such a trait an  ...  Symmetry Detection Learning Trials Every bird began the learning phase of the experiment by being reinforced to detect the symmetric images from the 50% asymmetric images.  ...

DeepFlux for Skeletons in the Wild [article]

Yukang Wang, Yongchao Xu, Stavros Tsogkas, Xiang Bai, Sven Dickinson, Kaleem Siddiqi
2018 arXiv   pre-print
Many recent methods frame object skeleton detection as a binary pixel classification problem, which is similar in spirit to learning-based edge detection, as well as to semantic segmentation methods.  ...  Computing object skeletons in natural images is challenging, owing to large variations in object appearance and scale, and the complexity of handling background clutter.  ...  Learning-based methods [19, 40, 45, 33, 42] have an improved ability for object skeleton detection in natural images, but such methods are still unable to cope with complex backgrounds or clutter.  ...

A probabilistic approach for defect detection based on saliency mechanisms

Francisco Bonnin-Pascual, Alberto Ortiz
2014 Proceedings of the 2014 IEEE Emerging Technology and Factory Automation (ETFA)  
The visual information is suggested to be based on features commonly used to predict human eye fixations: contrast and symmetry.  ...  The use of saliency mechanisms for defect detection is discussed in this work. We consider defects on regular surfaces as conspicuous areas that catch the attention of the surveyors.  ...  They call their framework Saliency Using Natural Statistics (SUN) since they focus on learned statistics from natural scenes.  ...
