Recent research by the EPA has concluded that one in six women of childbearing age have unsafe levels of mercury in their bodies, which puts 630,000 newborn babies each year at risk of neurological impairment. Mercury poses severe risks to the health of animals and...
Markov Random Field Modeling in Image Analysis (Advances in Pattern Recognition)
Modeling problems in this book are addressed mainly from the computational viewpoint. The primary concerns are how to define an objective function for the optimal solution to a image analysis or computer vision problem and how to find the optimal solution. The solution is defined in an optimization sense because the perfect solution is...
