Interactive Segmentation Techniques _ Algorithms and Performance Evaluation

  • Auteur: Jia He, Chang-Su Kim, C.-C. Jay Kuo

  • Domaine: Sciences Informatiques et technologies

This book focuses on interactive segmentation techniques, which have been extensively studied in recent decades. Interactive segmentation emphasizes clear extraction of objects of interest, whose locations are roughly indicated by human interactions based on high level perception. This book will first introduce classic graph-cut segmentation algorithms and then discuss state-of-the-art techniques, including graph matching methods, region merging and label propagation, clustering methods, and segmentation methods based on edge detection. A comparative analysis of these methods will be provided with quantitative and qualitative performance evaluation, which will be illustrated using natural and synthetic images. Also, extensive statistical performance comparisons will be made. Pros and cons of these interactive segmentation methods will be pointed out, and their applications will be discussed. There have been only a few surveys on interactive segmentation techniques, and those surveys do not cover recent state-of-the art techniques. By providing comprehensive up-to-date survey on the fast developing topic and the performance evaluation, this book can help readers learn interactive segmentation techniques quickly and thoroughly.

Applied Quantitative Finance presents solutions, theoretical developments and method proliferation for many practical problems in quantitative finance. The combination of practice and theory supported by computational tools is reflected in the selection of topics as well as in a finely tuned balance of scientific contributions on the practical implementation and theoretical concepts. This concept offers theoreticians insight into the applicability of the methodology and, vice versa, practitioners insight into new methods for their applications. The e-book design of the text links theory and computational tools in an innovative way. All "quantlets" for the calculation of given examples in the text are supported by the academic edition of XploRe. The electronic edition of the book enables one to execute and modify all quantlets immediately. The electronic edition can be downloaded at no cost via the attached registration card.

"Savoir ne suffit pas, il faut savoir transmettre " Faute de suivre cet adage, bien des formateurs et des enseignants se retrouvent face au "mur de l'ennui" et à ses conséquences directes : désintérêt et faible motivation des apprenants, faible efficacité du cours, mal-être dans leur métier. On peut pourtant apprendre et transmettre un savoir avec plaisir et efficacité. Ce guide s'appuie sur les fondements du "mieux-apprendre", approche pédagogique ouverte issue de l'Accelerative Learning, permettant de trouver ou de retrouver le plaisir d'apprendre. Cette approche est développée au bon plaisir d'apprendre (InterEditions) du même auteur. Un outil général de conception de vos formations, divisé en 7 sections principales des fiches pratiques et des fiches techniques, pour aller à l'essentiel Illustré par Jilème, avec 30 topogrammes.
