Paper Abstract

Gaussian mixture model (GMM) has been widely used for image segmentation in recent years due to its superior adaptability and simplicity of implementation. However, traditional GMM has the disadvantage of high computational complexity. In this paper an accelerated GMM is designed, for which the following approaches are adopted: establish the lookup table for Gaussian probability matrix to avoid the repetitive probability calculations on all pixels, employ the blocking detection method on each block of pixels to further decrease the complexity, change the structure of lookup table from 3D to 1D with more simple data type to reduce the space requirement. The accelerated GMM is applied on image segmentation with the help of OTSU method to decide the threshold value automatically. Our algorithm has been tested through image segmenting of flames and faces from a set of real pictures, and the experimental results prove its efficiency in segmentation precision and computational cost.
