Object Boundary Segmentation Using Graph Cuts Based Active Contours

Abstract

In this paper we propose an iterative graph cuts based active contours approach to segment an object boundary out of background. Given an initial boundary nearby the object, the graph cuts based active contour can iteratively deform to the object boundary even if there are large discontinuities and noise. In each iteration, the area of interest is a certain… (More)
