TV-Based Multi-Label Image Segmentation with Label Cost Prior

  title={TV-Based Multi-Label Image Segmentation with Label Cost Prior},
  author={Jing Yuan and Yuri Boykov},
This paper studies image segmentation based on the minimum description length (MDL) functional combining spatial regularization with a penality for the number of distinct segments, a.k.a. label cost prior. Continuous MDL-based segmentation functionals were introduced in [39]. We propose a convex relaxation approach for optimizing MDL criterion that leads to a globally optimal solution. As common in recent continuous convex formulations [30, 31], we use the totalvariation functional to encode… CONTINUE READING
