Paper Abstract

This paper applies a recently-developed neural clustering scheme, called 'probabilistic winner-take-all (PWTA)', to image segmentation. Experimental results are presented. These results show that the PWTA clustering scheme significantly outperforms the popular k-means algorithm when both are utilized to segment a synthetic-aperture-radar image representing ship targets in an open-ocean scene.
