Computational intelligence (CI) techniques involve different methodologies, e.g. fuzzy set theory, artificial neural networks, evolutionary computing and rough set theory. The capability of these techniques is to incorporate imprecision and incomplete information and to model a very complex system which makes them a useful tool in many scientific areas. Image analysis is one of these areas. Computational intelligence (CI) constitutes an umbrella of techniques, has proven to be flexible in decision making in dynamic environment. These techniques typically include Fuzzy sets, rough sets, Machine Learning, Molecular Computing, Neural Computing, Probabilistic Reasoning, Reinforcement Learning, Support Vector Machine, Cellular Automata, and other similar computational models and some basic bio-inspired techniques. In this book, we aim at gathering the latest advances of various topics in using such CI techniques in handling image processing and pattern recognition. Chapters and studies which couple the intelligence techniques and theories with specific image processing and pattern recognition technology problems are cordially invited. Survey articles that emphasize the research and application of CI in solving image and pattern recognition problems are greatly welcome. The primary target audience for the book includes researchers, scholars, postgraduate students and developers who are interested in image processing and pattern recognition research and related issues.
Objectives of this Book
The book will provide reviews of the cutting–edge technologies and insights for image processing and pattern recognition based systems. In particular, the book will be valuable companion and comprehensive reference for both postgraduate and senior undergraduate students who are taking a course in image processing and pattern recognition. The book will be organized in self-contained chapters to provide greatest reading flexibility. This book is interested in using the following techniques for image analysis as well as pattern recognition: Image Fusion, Genetic algorithms, Neural networks, Wavelet Analysis, Fuzzy theory.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the use of CI techniques for solving image analysis and pattern recognition:-.
•Computational Intelligence for denoising and restoration
•Computational Intelligence for pattern recognition
•Computational Intelligence for digital image processing, and encryption
•Computational Intelligence in computer vision
•Computational Intelligence for video content-based indexing and retrieval
•Applications, i.e. visual surveillance, biometry and medical imaging
•Applications to 3D objects and Face Models
•Human gesture recognition
•Human face detection and tracking
•Obstacle avoidance-Path planing under dynamic environment
•Object recognition-3D sensing and depth measuring systems
•The relevant for robot intelligence, etc.
•Motion estimation from the moving image
•Intelligent image processing system design
