Chen, Brenden, Chen, Daniel, Fookes, Clinton, Mamic, George, & Sridharan, Sridha (2008) Improved GrabCut segmentation via GMM optimisation. In Ceballos, S (Ed.) Computing: Techniques and Applications, 2008, IEEE, Australia, Australian Capital Territory, Canberra, pp. 39-45.
Semi-automatic segmentation of still images has vast and varied practical applications. Recently, an approach "GrabCut" has managed to successfully build upon earlier approaches based on colour and gradient information in order to address the problem of efficient extraction of a foreground object in a complex environment. In this paper, we extend the GrabCut algorithm further by applying an unsupervised algorithm for modelling the Gaussian Mixtures that are used to define the foreground and background in the segmentation algorithm. We show examples where the optimisation of the GrabCut framework leads to further improvements in performance.
