Use of power law models in detecting region of interest
In this paper, we shall address the issue of semantic extraction of different regions of interest. The proposed approach is based on statistical methods and models inspired from linguistic analysis. Here, the models used are Zipf law and inverse Zipf law. They are used to model the frequency of appearance of the patterns contained in images as power law distributions. The use of these models allows to characterize the structural complexity of image textures. This complexity measure indicates a perceptually salient region in the image. The image is first partitioned into sub-images that are to be compared in some sense. Zipf or inverse Zipf law are applied to these sub-images and they are classified according to the characteristics of the power law models involved. The classification method consists in representing the characteristics of the Zipf and inverse Zipf model of each sub-image by a point in a representation space in which a clustering process is performed. Our method allow...
