Over the last decade, a number of tools have been developed to evaluate, in a systematic way, patients' insight into their psychotic illness. Such tools, however, capture different clinical phenomena of insight. So far, there is no indication as to which phenomenon of insight might be the most useful or predictive (e.g. clinically or therapeutically) to(More)
This paper presents a new algorithm for synthesising image texture. Texture synthesis is an important process in image post-production. The best previous approaches have used non-parametric methods for synthesising texture. Unfortunately, these methods generally suffer from high computational cost and difficulty in handling scale in the synthesis process.(More)
This paper presents a new algorithm for synthesising image texture. Texture synthesis is an important process in image post-production. Previous approaches can be classified as either parametric or nonparametric. Of these nonparametric approaches have achieved the most impressive results. Unfortunately, these methods generally suffer from high computational(More)
This paper describes a supervised segmentation algorithm which draws inspiration from recent advances in non-parametric texture synthesis. A set of example images which have been segmented a priori are used as a guide in the segmentation process. This new algorithm is built on the Bayesian framework and combines the strengths of both parametric and(More)

Many businesses rely on forecasting techniques to detect whether sales opportunities are likely to be won or at risk of being lost. This enables the businesses to respond proactively. This paper describes a new method of sales forecasting that improves on an existing Qualitative Sales Predictor (QSP) in Hewlett-Packard (HP). QSP is based on a series of(More)
We assessed the occupancy dynamics of 275 California Spotted Owl (Strix occidentalis occidentalis) territories in 4 study areas in the Sierra Nevada, California, USA, from 1993 to 2011. We used Landsat data to develop maps of canopy cover for each study area, which we then used to quantify annual territory-specific habitat covariates. We modeled the(More)
This thesis is concerned with example based image processing. Example based image processing is a general term for any class of image processing operation where the manipulation and analysis of the image in question is guided by some set of example images. This thesis focuses on two applications, texture synthesis and image segmentation, in which example(More)
