Abstract

The present paper proposes a model for intelligent image contour detection. The model is strongly based on the architecture and functionality of the mammalian visual cortex. A pixel-to-feature transformation is performed on the input image, the result of which is a set of abstract image features, instead of another set of pixels. The contouring task is performed by a vast and complex network of simple units of computation that work together in a parallel way. The use of a large number of such simple units allows a clear structure that can be implemented on a special hardware to allow constant time computation.
