In this paper a new matching pursuits dissimilarity measure (MPDM) is presented that compares two signals using the information provided by their matching pursuits (MP) approximations, without requiring any prior domain knowledge. MPDM is a flexible and differentiable measure that can be used to perform shape-based comparisons and fuzzy clustering of very… (More)
Image algebra is a comprehensive, unifying theory of image transformations, image analysis, and image understanding. In 1996, the bestselling first edition of the Handbook of Computer Vision Algorithms in Image Algebra introduced engineers, scientists, and students to this powerful tool, its basic c...
In this paper, we provide a comprehensive survey of the mixture of experts (ME). We discuss the fundamental models for regression and classification and also their training with the expectation-maximization algorithm. We follow the discussion with improvements to the ME model and focus particularly on the mixtures of Gaussian process experts. We provide a… (More)
A variety of algorithms are presented and employed in a hierarchical fashion to discriminate both Anti-Tank (AT) and Anti-Personnel (AP) landmines using data collected from Wideband ElectroMagnetic Induction (WEMI) and Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) sensors mounted on a robotic platform. The two new algorithms for WEMI are based on the In-phase vs.… (More)
