Components of the Shape Revisited

There are multiple and even interacting dimensions along which shape representation schemes may be compared and contrasted. In this paper, we focus on the following question. Are the building blocks in a compositional model localized in space (e.g. as in part based representations) or are they holistic simplifications (e.g. as in spectral representations)? Existing shape representation schemes prefer one or the other. We propose a new shape representation paradigm that encompasses both choices. © 2010, Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence.
