Snake based unsupervised texture segmentation using Gaussian Markov Random Field Models

Sasan Mahmoodi, Steve Gunn
2011 2011 18th IEEE International Conference on Image Processing  
A functional for unsupervised texture segmentation is investigated in this paper. An autonormal model based on Markov Random Fields is employed here to represent textures.  ...  The functional investigated here is optimized with respect to the auto-normal model parameters and the evolving contour to simultaneously estimate auto-normal model parameters and find the evolving contour  ...  The model parameters are therefore estimated by a maximum likelihood scheme (ML) in each iteration.  ...
