ABSTRACT In this paper a novel model for multiscale space-color
quantization of multispectral images, is described. The approach is
based on the hierarchical clustering technique, derived from the
statistical physics model of free energy (Jovovic 1996, Jovovic et al.
1999). The group vectors for image color are computed on the adaptively
selected windows of computation, as contrasted to the block-size
windows, optimizing the accuracy of the computation of the group vectors
with the density of sampling an image by the group windows. The
algorithm is suitable for implementation in parallel computer
architectures. The results of quantization of color images by our
algorithm are compared with 3 image compression techniques: 1) wavelets,
2) discrete cosine transform (DCT), and, 3) quad tree (QT). Contextual
information of spatial coherency of the data is used in the segmentation
process, in our algorithm. As a result, much better spatial resolution
and small size of compressed images are obtained by our algorithm, as
compared to the other techniques, for any error level of compression
selected. Major spatial features are optimally color-coded along the
hierarchy of scales of computation. The images quantized with our
algorithm are suitable for the run-length encoding scheme of the
hierarchy of binary images

    ABSTRACT: We consider issues of computability and complexity in statistical physics from the perspective of information theory. It assumes information coupling by a mass conservation. Finally, we explain here our view on the 'mass phenomenon' in the clusters of information. 01/2010;

    ABSTRACT: SCIENTIFIC AND TECHNOLOGICAL OBJECTIVES Stochastic Resonance Synergetics is a generalized description of an intelligent agent, with a memory and means of action, and its interactions with the environment. It studies coding, control, and propagation of information. This paradigm of computation recognizes an internal state of networked neural system and its interaction with the environment via coupled information propagation. It combines spatial and a dimension of scale in a dynamical system of computation, in the scale-space. The SRS hypothesis aims for building a study discipline of intelligent agents that uses a quantitative analysis of attention, memory and behavioral data. It requires a cross psucho-physics, bio-imaging and computer science, machine learning approaches to achieve:  A proof of the concept in multi-dimensional, information-driven situations: unpredictable and/or evolutions in a systemic or environmental nature; both, a system of intelligent agents and environments may entrain each other at different spatio-temporal and dynamic scales.  Diagnosis of disordered states and self-adjustment to those aligned with the environment.  Coordination of motion of the self-adjusted intelligent agent systems for different (structural as well as functional) morphodynamic and evolutionary purposes. The main goal of the project is to further develop and validate scale-space approaches using renormalization techniques that yield hierarchies of robust regimes of synergetics
