Paper Abstract

The authors describe the negative fuse, an analog model which encourages boundary completion in early vision regularization algorithms. This algorithm is an extension of the successful implementation of line processes in analog VLSI using the resistive fuse (Harris et al.). The negative fuse provides for true negative resistance regions for the enhancement of edges, making long connected edges more likely to occur. This model has a natural mapping into inexpensive, fast, low-power analog hardware. The authors discuss the performance of a negative fuse element fabricated in VLSI and show simulations of network performance on digitized camera images.
