One of the most challenging computer vision problem in plant sciences is the segmentation of root and soil from X-ray tomography. So far, this has been addressed from classical image analysis methods. In this paper, we address this root/soil segmentation problem from X-ray tomography using a new deep learning classification technique. The robustness of this technique, tested for the first time on this plant science problem, is established with root/soil presenting a very low contrast in X-ray… CONTINUE READING
