Neural network edge detection and skin lesions image segmentation methods: analysis and evaluation
Rajab, Maher I. (2003) Neural network edge detection and skin lesions image segmentation methods: analysis and evaluation. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
Similar to a human observer, an automated image vision system is able to recognise most parts of an object if the system could accurately trace and reflect its true shape. This has prompted the development of the many diverse edge detection techniques. Neural networks have been successfully applied to pattern recognition tasks and edge detection. However, there is a great necessity to analyse neural network models so as to achieve close insight into their internal functionality. To this purpose, a new and general training set, consisting of a limited number of prototype edge patterns, is proposed to analyse the problem of neural network edge detection.
