Paper Abstract

Segmentation of an image into meaningful regions is a crucial component in intelligent scene understanding. In images of natural scenes there is a high degree of variability and uncertainty in the features which represent the regions and objects. In previous papers, new features, based on fractal geometry, were introduced to describe natural textured regions. In this paper, those fractal features are utilized as descriptors in segmentation algorithms which produce fuzzy partitions of the image plane. In particular, segmentation schemes based on the fuzzy K-nearest-neighbors and split-and-merge are implemented to segment digital images.
