"Active Contours" appears on the Map of Scientific Paradigms (in the thread from the lowest purple circle in the CS cluster)


Award-winning AI Journal paper on recovering 3D shape and nonrigid motion using physics-based deformable models (deformable generalized cylinders). Both this and the above "snakes" paper also introduced to CV the notion of model-based tracking in video.
