The hierarchical cluster model for image region segmentation

Conference Paper


Abstract


  • The hierarchical cluster model (HCM), a neural network inspired by the human brain [1], is demonstrated for the purpose of region segmentation in digital images. Starting with an over segmented image, regions are merged based on evidence of a valid edge between the two regions. Unlike the work in [1], in which the HCM is used to recall a set of pre-trained memory patterns, the HCM in our work demonstrates unsupervised decision making capabilities.
