Paper Abstract

Image segmentation is an essential step in every practical image processing system. Current image segmentation algorithms suffer from a well known problem- They have poor performances on images different from the ones that were used in their initial development and training stages. In this paper we discuss a system concept for automatic design of segmentation algorithms based on image and objects metrics, and knowledge of image processing primitives.The proposed system concept makes makes use of Planning techniques, discussed in Artificial Intelligence.This paper provides the essential elements of the next generation Automatic Segmentation Design (ASD) systems that will not be scenario dependent. Applications of this concept include robotic vision, automatic target recognition, and image understanding systems.
