Segmentation Team Publishes at ACM’s Applied Perception Symposium

The 3D Segmentation team published their fourth paper, “How experts’ mental models affects 3D image segmentation” at ACM’s Symposium on Applied Perception (SAP), held July 22-23, 2016 in Anaheim, California. The ACM published the paper to the SAP ’16  proceedings.

The paper outlines the research design behind the following hypothesis: Provided with a 3D structure and slicing plane experts are able to predict the 2D contour, how 2D contour changes with small view changes and identify any invalid 2D contours. Building on the Santa Barbara Solids Test and previous research, the team developed a design that tests for key differences between expert and novice segmenters.
