Textons, Contours and Regions: Cue Integration in Image Segmentation

  title={Textons, Contours and Regions: Cue Integration in Image Segmentation},
  author={Jitendra Malik and Serge J. Belongie and Jianbo Shi and Thomas K. Leung},
This paper makes two contributions. It provides (1) an operational definition of textons, the putative elementary units of texture perception, and (2) an algorithm for partitioning the image into disjoint regions of coherent brigh tness and texture, where boundaries of regions are defined by peaks in contour orientation energy and differences in texton densities across the contour. Julesz introduced the term texton, analogous to a phoneme in speech recognition, but did not provide an… CONTINUE READING
