Abstract

Segmentation is one of the important computer vision processes that is used in many practical applications such as medical imaging, computer-guided surgery, machine vision, object recognition, surveillance, content-based browsing, augmented reality applications, etc.. The knowledge to ascertain plausible segmentation applications and corresponding algorithmic techniques is necessary to simplify the video representation into a more meaningful and easier form to analyze. This is because expected segmentation quality for a given application depends on the level of granularity and the requirement that is related to shape precision and temporal coherence of the objects.
