Paper Abstract

A neural network solution to the problem of automatic threshold selection for image segmentation is presented. A multilayer perceptron is trained on a set of feature vectors extracted from gray scale imagery. The trained network then emulates the threshold selection behavior of its teacher. The thresholds obtained are used by a region based segmentation algorithm to partition the meaningful objects in the image into regions of constant gray level. Experimental results are given for a set of infrared imagery. 1.
