Paper Abstract

A two-fold image understanding algorithm based on Bayesian networks is introduced. The methodology has modules for image segmentation evaluation and region of interest (ROI) identification. The former uses a set of segmentation maps (SMs) of a target image to identify the optimal one. These SMs could be generated from the same segmentation algorithm at different thresholds or from different segmentation techniques. Global and regional low-level image features are extracted from the optimal SM and used along with the original image to identify the ROI. The proposed algorithm was tested on a set of 4000 color images that are publicly available and compared favorably to the state-of-the-art techniques. Applications of the proposed framework include image compression, image summarization, mobile phone imagery, digital photo cropping, and image thumb-nailing.
