Description
The human brain uses small differences between the images reaching our two eyes to perceive the three-dimensional shape of the world around us. In order to detect these differences, known as binocular disparities, the brain must find points in one eye's image that match to points in the other eye's image. However, for any single point in an image, the brain is often forced to choose between multiple matches. The problem of finding the correct match from amongst these alternatives is known as the correspondence problem. This problem can be simplified by making assumptions about the typical shape of objects in the world, and by finding matches between different ki...
