A new approach for edge detection using a combination of bacterial foraging algorithm (BFA) and probabilistic derivative technique derived from Ant Colony Systems, is presented in this paper. The foraging behavior of some species of bacteria like Escherichia coli can be hypothetically modeled as an optimization process. A group of bacteria search for nutrients in a way that maximizes the energy obtained per unit time spent during the foraging. The proposed approach aims at driving the bacteria… CONTINUE READING
