Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The standard two-alternative forced-choice experiment was modified to provide human observers more information. Human performance were tested in a variety of images classes with the standard and with the modified experiments. There was a significant human performance increase from the standard to the modified experiment.
