Guy Ben-Yosef:  Full interpretation of minimal images
We aim to model the process of ‘full interpretation’ of object images, which is the ability to identify and localize all semantic features and parts that are recognized by human observers. We model the interpretation process by identifying primitive components and relations that play a...
