Decades ago there were and are books in machine vision, which by implementing various information processing rules from gestalt psychology, got impressive results with little code or special hardware in image identification and visual processing.

Are such methods being used or worked on today? Was any progress made on this? Or was this research program dropped? By today, I mean 2016, not 1995 or 2005.

    $\begingroup$ Could you cite some papers / authors / textbooks that you would say represented this trend? $\endgroup$ – bukwyrm Jul 31 '18 at 17:02

current state of research in computer vision based on gestalt psychology is in dormant state , with the success of convolutional neural networks since 2012 most of the computer vision community shifted towards neural networks.
