We present an approach for controlling relaxation parameters in variable conductance diffusion. This approach incorporates a Bayesian classifier to perform a partial labeling of an image, followed by a diffusion step. Conductance values between pixels are controlled by statistical measurements made of the partial classification. Several iterations follow,(More)
Constraint-based design is the process of selecting among alternatives to best satisfy a set of potentially conflicting goals. A key problem in constraint-based design is finding globally optimal solutions to problems without limiting the complexity of constraints. In this work, constraints are encoded as cost functions that express how well the constraints(More)
