A Markov random field model for object matching under contextual constraints

  title={A Markov random field model for object matching under contextual constraints},
  author={Stan Z. Li},
This paper presents a Markov random eld (MRF) model for object recognition in high level vision. The labeling state of a scene in terms of a model object is considered as an MRF or couples MRFs. Within the Bayesian framework, the optimal solution is deened as the maximum a posteriori (MAP) estimate of the MRF. The posterior distribution is derived based on sound mathematical principles from theories of MRF and probability, which is in contrast to heuristic formulations. An experimental result… CONTINUE READING
