Natural Image Segmentation with Adaptive Texture and Boundary Encoding
Algorithm for unsupervised segmentation of natural images that harnesses the principle of minimum description length (MDL). The method is based on observations that a homogeneously textured region of a natural image can be well modeled by a Gaussian distribution and the region boundary can be effectively coded by an adaptive chain code. The optimal segmentation of an image is the one that gives the shortest coding length for encoding all textures and boundaries in the image, and is obtained via an agglomerative clustering process applied to a hierarchy of decreasing window sizes. The optimal segmentation also provides an accurate estimate of the overall coding length and hence the true entropy of the image.
