Computational texture and patterns: from textons to deep learning
This slim volume considers the question of representing and matching textures and similar patterns. This question is closely related to recognition--for example, recognizing that something is a picture of a leafless tree--and segmentation, that is, picking out the distinct (leaved) trees in a... more
Programs of machines are of a linear character. That is, at any given moment impulses move sequentially from one element to the next and all other... more
