Image segmentation is an important problem in image processing. Existing methods have not solved this problem in some aspects. Alife is a new natural computing method with much good performance. We induce it into image segmentation and propose a novel Alife model Shape-Varying Agent (SVA). The new method combines the advantages of Alife approaches and region growing approaches, achieving good performance on image segmentation.
