Paper Abstract

The minimum description length (MDL) criterion is used to fit a facet model of a car to an image. The best fit is achieved when the difference image between the car and the background has the greatest compression. MDL overcomes the overfitting and parameter precision problems which hamper the more usual maximum likelihood method of model fitting. Some preliminary results are shown.
