We present an approach for unsupervised segmentation of natural and textural images based on active contour, differential geometry and information theoretical concept. More precisely, we propose a new texture descriptor which intrinsically defines the geometry of textural regions using the shape operator borrowed from differential geometry. Then, we use the popular Kullback-Leibler distance to define an active contour model which distinguishes the background and textural objects of interest… CONTINUE READING
