The Message in the Shadow: Noise or Knowledge? (Dagstuhl Seminar 15192)

Abstract

Computer vision, besides being a key area in Computer Science, is present in various industrial applications, such as traffic sign recognition (including car license plates), face and gesture recognition, content-based image retrieval, remote sensing, cartography, radar sensing, and robot mapping. However, most computer vision systems disregard the cognitive aspects of human perception, thus limiting their applicability in natural environments, whereby small changes in the light conditions cause negative effects on the system's accuracy. This seminar brought together contributions from Computer Vision, Cognitive Psychology, Philosophy and History of Art in order to discuss the information content in cast shadows which, although currently recognised by psychologists as providing important cues about depth perception, is considered as noise in the computer vision literature.
