Hierarchical Regions for Image Segmentation

  title={Hierarchical Regions for Image Segmentation},
  author={Slawomir Wesolkowski and Paul W. Fieguth},
Image segmentation is one of the key problems in computer vision. Gibbs Random Fields (GRFs), which produce elegant models, but which have very poor computational speed have been widely applied to image segmentation. In this paper, we propose a hierarchical region-based approach to the GRF. In contrast to block-based hierarchies usually constructed for GRFs, the irregular region-based approach is a far more natural model in segmenting real images. By deliberately oversegmenting at the finer… CONTINUE READING
