Retrieving images by 2D shape: a comparison of computation methods with human perceptual judgments

Brian M. Scassellati, Sophoclis Alexopoulos, Myron D. Flickner, Carlton W. Niblack, Ramesh C. Jain
1994 Storage and Retrieval for Image and Video Databases II  
In content based image retrieval, systems allow users to ask for objects similar in shape to a query object.  ...  However, there is no clear understanding of how computational shape similarity corresponds to human shape similarity.  ...  The available method for evaluating a shape matching technique is comparison against human perceptual judgments.  ...

Visceral Signals Shape Brain Dynamics and Cognition

Damiano Azzalini, Ignacio Rebollo, Catherine Tallon-Baudry
2019 Trends in Cognitive Sciences  
This active field of research offers a unique opportunity to draw new theories blurring the border between cognition, emotion, and consciousness, as well as between mind and body.  ...  These ongoing ascending signals actively shape brain dynamics at rest, complementing canonical resting-state networks (RSNs).  ...  In contrast, consider the kind of learning that allows a human being to recognize an image with high accuracy that was previously only seen once as part of a sequence of 10'000 images, each shown once  ...

A histogram-based approach for object-based query-by-shape-and-color in image and video databases

Ediz Şaykol, Uğur Güdükbay, Özgür Ulusoy
2005 Image and Vision Computing  
Considering the fact that querying by low-level object features is essential in image and video data, an efficient approach for querying and retrieval by shape and color is proposed.  ...  The objects can be extracted from images or video frames. The proposed histogram-based approach is used as a component in the query-by-feature subsystem of a video database management system.  ...  Acknowledgements This work was supported by Scientific and Technical Research Council of Turkey (TÜ BİTAK) under the grant  ...

Semi-Supervised Co-Analysis of 3D Shape Styles from Projected Lines

Fenggen Yu, Yan Zhang*, Kai Xu, Ali Mahdavi-Amiri, Hao Zhang
2018 ACM Transactions on Graphics  
We present a semi-supervised co-analysis method for learning 3D shape styles from projected feature lines, achieving style patch localization with only weak supervision.  ...  Given a collection of 3D shapes spanning multiple object categories and styles, we perform style co-analysis over projected feature lines of each 3D shape and then backproject the learned style features  ...  This work was supported in part by NSFC (61572507, 61532003, 61622212) for Kai Xu, NSERC (611370) and a gift grant from Adobe Research for Hao Zhang, and NSERC PDF for Ali Mahdavi-Amiri.  ...

TailorNet: Predicting Clothing in 3D as a Function of Human Pose, Shape and Garment Style [article]

Chaitanya Patel, Zhouyingcheng Liao, Gerard Pons-Moll
2020 arXiv   pre-print
The weights of the mixture are computed with a narrow bandwidth kernel to guarantee that only predictions with similar high-frequency patterns are combined.  ...  The style variation is obtained by computing, in a canonical pose, a subspace of deformation, which satisfies physical constraints such as inter-penetration, and draping on the body.  ...  This work is partly funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) -409792180 (Emmy Noether Programme, project: Real Virtual Humans) and Google Faculty Research Award.  ...

Filipp Schmidt, Roland W. Fleming, Matteo Valsecchi
2020 Journal of Vision  
For this, we created a large number of novel stimuli with varying surface shape features.  ...  Here, we set out to test the role of such shape features on judgments of material properties softness and weight.  ...  and local shape features on material property judgments for real-world images of different textiles.  ...

1998 Human Vision and Electronic Imaging III  
This paper also describes and validates a new technique for collecting similarity judgments which can provide meaningful results with a factor of four fewer judgments, as compared with the paired comparisons  ...  We then used the two perceptual and the two algorithmic methods to measure the similarity of each image to every other image in the data set, producing four similarity matrices.  ...  Often, these features are thought to contribute to human judgments of image similarity (e.g. color, texture, and shape), but with few exceptions, 7,6 the characteristics of human similarity perception  ...

We develop a model of perceptual similarity judgment based on re-training a deep convolution neural network (DCNN) that learns to associate different views of each 3D object to capture the notion of object  ...  Interestingly, the resulting transformation of feature representation in the deep networks is found to significantly better match human perceptual similarity judgment than AlexNet, suggesting that object  ...  In this paper, we explored computational models for understanding the neural basis of human perceptual similarity judgment.  ...
