Paper Abstract

We describe a new method for computing approximations to the marginal probability mass function of the random variables in a Markov random field (MRF). When applied to the a posteriori MRF, this yields approximations to the conditional marginal probability mass function, which is the key quantity in a Bayesian classifier. We apply these ideas to an optical agricultural remote sensing problem where they outperform the pixel-by-pixel ML classifier by 38%.
