Morphological/rank neural networks and their adaptive optimal design for image processing

  title={Morphological/rank neural networks and their adaptive optimal design for image processing},
  author={L{\'u}cio F. C. Pessoa and Petros Maragos},
In this paper we formulate a general class of neural network based lters, where each node is a morphological/rank operation. This type of system is computationally eecient since no multiplications are necessary. The introduction of such networks is partially motivated from observations that internal structures of a neuron can generate logic operations. An eecient adaptive optimal design procedure is proposed for these networks, based on the back-propagation algorithm. The procedure is optimal… CONTINUE READING
