Simultaneous Segmentation and Figure/Ground Organization using Angular Embedding
Abstract. Image segmentation and figure/ground organization are fundamental steps in visual perception. This paper introduces an algorithm that couples these tasks together in a single grouping framework driven by low-level image cues. By encoding both affinity and ordering preferences in a common representation and solving an Angular Embedding problem, we allow segmentation cues to influence figure/ground assignment and figure/ground cues to influence segmentation. Results are comparable to state-of-the-art automatic image segmentation systems, while additionally providing a global figure/ground ordering on regions.
