In this paper, a new pixon-based method is presented for image segmentation. In the proposed algorithm, bilateral filtering is used as a kernel function to form a pixonal image. Using this filter reduces the noise and smoothes the image slightly. By using this pixon-based method, the image over segmentation could be avoided. Indeed, the bilateral filtering, as a preprocessing step, eliminates the unnecessary details of the image and results in a few numbers of pixons, faster performance and… CONTINUE READING
