How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Brain Storm optimization (BSO) is a swarm-based, metaheuristic for global optimization, which has been inspired by the collective behavior of human beings. In this work, a novel BSO-based variant, Determinative BSO (DBSO), is proposed and applied for image segmentation. The proposed algorithm implements a cluster-merging strategy, inspired by the p...
Shadow detection is useful in a variety of image analysis applications, as it can improve scene understanding. Most of the recent shadow detection approaches use near-infrared (NIR) cameras and deep learning to provide enhanced segmentation of the shadow areas in images. In this paper a novel shadow detection method is proposed, exploiting the perc...
Staircase detection in natural images has several applications in the context of robotics and visually impaired navigation. Previous works are mainly based on handcrafted feature extraction and supervised learning using fully annotated images. In this work we address the problem of staircase detection in weakly labeled natural images, using a novel...
