Paper Abstract

Bayes probability networks, also termed `influence diagrams,' promise to be a versatile, rigorous, and expressive uncertainty reasoning tool. This paper presents an example of how a Bayes network can express constraints among visual hypotheses. An example is presented of a model composed of cylindric primitives, inferred from a line drawing of a plumbing fixture. Conflict between interpretations of candidate cylinders is expressed by two parameters, one for the presence and one for the absence of visual evidence of their intersection. It is shown how `partial exclusion' relations are so generated and how they determine the degree of competition among the set of hypotheses. Solving this network obtains the assemblies of cylinders most likely to form an object.
