Image segmentation based on shape constraints through the ultimate levelings

Abstract

Generally, a typical image analysis problem consists of five basic steps: image acquisition; preprocessing; segmentation; representation and description; recognition and interpretation. Among these, we highlight the segmentation of images, a step that consists of partitioning the image domain in order to demarcate the objects of interest in the image.Therefore, we have to keep in mind that an inaccurate segmentation can compromise the results of the analysis. In addition, the complexity of the analyzed scene and the particular characteristics of each object lead to the segmentation task extremely complex since the objects of interest, in many applications, represent organs, cells, characters, machine components, among others.In most practical problems of image analysis the object shape is known a priori. Thus, it is highly desirable to incorporate such knowledge into the models and algorithms but this is not a trivial task.In this context, we intend to explore a framework based on residual operators defined in the context of Mathematical Morphology to solve problems of shape analysis. Thus, following the regular research project "Shape analysis through the ultimate levelings" - financed by FAPESP (grant number: 2016/02547-5), the objective of this research project is to continue studies on methods of shape analysis based on ultimate levelings.
