Paper Abstract

This article proposes an evolutionary algorithm based segmentation algorithm for automatically grouping the pixels of an image into different homogeneous regions. In contrast to most of the existing evolutionary image segmentation techniques, we have incorporated spatial information into the membership function for clustering. The spatial function is the summation of the membership function in the neighborhood of each pixel under consideration. The two very important advantages of the new method are: 1) It does not require a priori knowledge of the number of partitions in the image and 2) It yields regions, more homogeneous than the existing methods even in presence of noise.
