Matched filtering determines human visual search in natural images

submitted by: alexandertoet
The structural image similarity index (SSIM), introduced by Wang and Bovik (IEEE Signal Processing Letters 9-3, pp. 81-84, 2002) measures the similarity between images in terms of luminance, contrast en structure. It has successfully been deployed to model human visual perception of image distortions and modifications in a wide range of different imaging applications. Chang and Zhang (Infrared Physics & Technology 51-2, pp. 83-90, 2007) recently introduced the target structural...
