Paper Abstract

We propose a robust non-parametric algorithm for the segmentation of 1D histograms. This algorithm is based on the empirical distribution function of the data and the resulting partitioning of the histogram can be used to identify salient regions in images. Furthermore, we report on experiments where these extracted salient regions are used for region-based similarity matching.
