A novel method based on support vector machine (SVM) for color image segmentation is presented. Considering image segmentation is a two-class problem, a two-class SVM to classify pixels in color space is proposed. In order to speed up training and optimize parameters of SVM, the color quantization and sample selection approaches are presented to reduce the… CONTINUE READING
