Paper Abstract

Mask matching is one method for edge detection which convolves patterns in various orientations with the given image. The orientation that gives the best match at a given point is decided as the edge orientation at that point, and the magnitude of this best match as a measure of the edge strength. However, detectors are usually designed heuristically or are designed based on some assumed distribution of pixels. Thus, how to select an appropriate edge detector for a specific type of images is by no means an easy job. This paper presents a connectionist procedure for learning the appropriate edge detector for a specific class of images. The delta learning rule is used to train a neural network and the effort of designing edge detectors is done automatically. The experimental results show that this learning approach is promising.
