Discovering Image Processing: A Segmentation Application

I hope that this little posts “Discovering Image Processing” (which I will try to write more often) encourage people, from places that don’t know about it (like my country Guatemala), to enter and discover this amazing field.

Yesterday on Steve’s blog I read a great example of what we can do with image processing knowledge and MATLAB.

Actually is quite impressive that with a few commands you can achieve a task like segmenting people out and replacing the background. I hope that people that is not related with the field could find these kind of application interesting enough to give it a try. So, what segmentation is? you could ask; well, is the task of separate one or several objects from the image. For humans is really easy to tell where an object begin and where it ends. For machines, however, this task is not that easy. Therefore, a whole research area is dedicated to solve this problem.

Here they explain how to get from three amigos to two amigos! :mrgreen:
