The matched filter has been widely used in the detection of blood vessels of the human retina digital image. In this paper, the matched filter response to the detection of blood vessels is increased by proposing better filter parameters. These filter parameters are found by using an optimization procedure on 20 retina images of the DRIVE database.(More)
Due to the importance of the matched filter in the automated detection of blood vessels in digital retinal images, improving its response is highly desirable. This filter may vary in many ways depending on the parameters that govern its response. In this paper, new parameters to optimize the sensitivity of the matched filter are found using genetic(More)
In this chapter, we study the equivalence between multilayer feedforward neural networks referred as Ordinary Neural Networks (ONNs) that contain only summation (Sigma) as activation units, and multilayer feedforward Higher order Neural Networks (HONNs) that contains Sigma and product (PI) activation units. Since the time they were introduced by Giles and(More)
