Extreme Algorithm Selection With Dyadic Feature Representation [article]

Alexander Tornede, Marcel Wever, Eyke Hüllermeier
2020 arXiv   pre-print
We assess the applicability of state-of-the-art AS techniques to the XAS setting and propose approaches leveraging a dyadic feature representation in which both problem instances and algorithms are described  ...  Algorithm selection (AS) deals with selecting an algorithm from a fixed set of candidate algorithms most suitable for a specific instance of an algorithmic problem, e.g., choosing solvers for SAT problems  ...  To this end, we propose extreme algorithm selection (XAS) as a novel setting, which is characterized by an extremely large though still finite (and predefined) set of candidate algorithms.  ...

Speckle reduction and contrast enhancement of echocardiograms via multiscale nonlinear processing

Xuli Zong, A.F. Laine, E.A. Geiser
1998 IEEE Transactions on Medical Imaging  
Enhancement of echocardiographic features is accomplished via nonlinear stretching followed by hard thresholding of wavelet coefficients within selected (midrange) spatial-frequency levels of analysis.  ...  We show that the algorithm is capable of not only reducing speckle, but also enhancing features of diagnostic importance, such as myocardial walls in two-dimensional echocardiograms obtained from the parasternal  ...  Through multiscale representation by a discrete dyadic wavelet transform (DWT) with a first-order derivative of a smoothing function as its basis wavelet we can distinguish feature energy from noise reasonably  ...

Multiscale wavelet representations for mammographic feature analysis

Andrew F. Laine, Shuwu Song, David C. Wilson, Joseph N. Wilson
1992 Mathematical Methods in Medical Imaging  
This paper introduces a novel approach for accomplishing mammographic feature analysis through multiresolution representations.  ...  Multiresolution and orientation selectivity, known biological mechanisms in primate vision, are ingrained in wavelet representations and inspire the techniques presented in this paper.  ...  These results provided an algorithm that was very efficient and "tunable" in many aspects to enhance relevant diagnostic information with little or no enhancement of noise.  ...

Multi-scale feature identification using evolution strategies

Xiaojing Yuan, Jian Zhang, Xiaohui Yuan, Bill P. Buckles
2005 Image and Vision Computing  
We use evolution strategies as the optimization algorithm to identify features. The system is based on a conjecture that certain filters will give prominent responses to certain features.  ...  For images containing a specific sort of feature (e.g. convective storm) or region (e.g. earthquake debris), that feature or region is always located adjacent to other features and regions on the image  ...  We emphasize that the proposed system is extremely effective for feature identification.  ...

2010 Visual Communications and Image Processing 2010  
Employing wavelet packets instead of the dyadic wavelet transform turns out to be of advantage only in case of low bitrates (i.e. high compression rates).  ...  performance of the WSQ structure is confirmed also in JPEG2000 and in particular we get better recognition accuracy using the WSQ structure as compared to the employment of a rate-distortion optimising subband selection  ...  In extreme cases, even FAR or FMR might be affected. Optimisation of compression algorithms to meet the specific properties of the data to be compressed is a natural strategy.  ...
