Özet

We consider the task of tracing out target figures hidden in teeming figure pictures known as figure hunt games. Figure hunt games are a popular genre of visual puzzles; a timeless classic for children, artists and cognitive scientists. We argue and experimentally demonstrate that diffusion is a key to algorithmically search for a target figure in a binary line drawing. Particularly suited to the considered task, we propose a diffuse representation which diffuses the image while retaining the contour information.
