We consider the task of tracing out target figures hidden in teeming figure pictures known as figure hunt games. Figure hunt games are a popular genre of visual puzzles; a timeless classic for children, artists and cognitive scientists. We argue and experimentally demonstrate that diffusion is a key to algorithmically search for a target figure in a binary line drawing. Particularly suited to the considered task, we propose a diffuse representation which diffuses the image while retaining the contour information.

Wimmelbild analysis with approximate curvature coding distance images
Bergbauer, Julia; Tarı, Zehra Sibel (2013-09-25)
We consider a task of tracing out target figures hidden in teeming figure pictures come to known as Wimmelbild(er). Wimmelbild is a popular genre of visual puzzles; a timeless classic for children, artists and cognitive scientists. Particularly suited to the considered task, we propose a diffuse representation which serves as a heuristic approximation mimicking curvature coding distance images. Curvature coding distance images received increased attention in recent years. Typically, they are computed as sol...
THE PERCEPTION OF PRESERVICE ICT TEACHERS ABOUT USING DIGITAL GAMES IN EDUCATIONAL SETTINGS
Sevim, Nese; Kaplan, Göknur; Islim, Omer Faruk (2012-07-04)
The current study is designed as a quantitative study, which aims to investigate preservice ICT teachers' perceptions about the use of digital games for educational purposes within educational settings. The participants of the study are preservice ICT teachers who are currently enrolled in the Middle East Technical University, which is one of the top-notch universities in Turkey as well as one of the top 100 universities in the world. In this study, survey method was used. A questionnaire that contained fif...
An Improved BOW Approach Using Fuzzy Feature Encoding and Visual-word Weighting
Altintakan, Umit L.; Yazıcı, Adnan (2015-08-05)
The bag-of-words (BOW) has become a popular image representation model with successful implementations in visual analysis. Although the original model has been improved in several ways, the utilization of the Fuzzy Set Theory in BOW has not been investigated thoroughly. This paper presents a fuzzy feature encoding approach to address the problems associated with the hard and soft assignments of image features to the visualwords. Our encoding method assigns each image feature to only the first and second clo...
Reconstruction of a 3D human head model from images
Hassanpour, Reza Zare; Atalay, Mehmet Volkan; Department of Computer Engineering (2003)
The main aim of this thesis is to generate 3D models of human heads from uncalibrated images. In order to extract geometric values of a human head, we find camera parameters using camera auto calibration. However, some image sequences generate non-unique (degenerate) solutions. An algorithm for removing degeneracy from the most common form of camera movement in face image acquisition is described. The geometric values of main facial features are computed initially. The model is then generated by gradual def...
On the Solution of Data Association Problem Using Rollout Algorithms
Ozgen, Selim; Demirekler, Mübeccel; Orguner, Umut (2016-07-08)
The quality and precision of tracking maneuvering targets under heavy clutter is highly dependent on both the data association and the state estimation algorithms. In this study, measurement-to-track association problem for a single target when P-D = 1 is discussed. The problem considers the batch set of measurements in a time interval. An approximate stochastic optimization algorithm for data association is presented. To reduce the computational load, the rollout algorithm is utilized. The algorithm is app...
