The transition to symbolic information from images involves in general the loss or misclassification of information. One way to deal with this missing or wrong information is to get feedback from concrete hypotheses derived at a symbolic level to the sub-symbolic (signal) stage to amplify weak information or correct misclassifications. This paper proposes such a feedback mechanism between the symbolic level and the signal level, which we call signal symbol loop. We apply this framework for the detection of low contrast edges making use of predictions based on Rigid Body Motion. Once the Rigid Body Motion is known, the location and the properties of edges at a later frame can be predicted. We use these predictions as feedback to the signal level at a later frame to improve the detection of low contrast edges. We demonstrate our mechanism on a real example, and evaluate the results using an artificial scene, where the ground truth data is available.

A Fuzzy logic based ensemble adaptive tile prefetching
Uluat, Mehmet Fatih; İşler, Veysi; Department of Computer Engineering (2014)
Prefetching is a process in which necessary portion of data is predicted and loaded into memory beforehand. The increasing usage of geographic data in different types of applications motivated the development of different prefetching techniques. These techniques are usually developed for specific type of applications such as 2D geographic information systems or 3D visualization applications and crafted for corresponding navigation patterns. However, as boundary between these application types blurs, these t...
A shape descriptor based on circular Hidden Markov Model
Arica, N; Yarman Vural, Fatoş Tunay (2000-09-07)
Given the shape information of an object, can we find visually meaningful "n" objects in an image database, which is ranked from the most similar to the n(th) similar one? The answer to this question depends on the complexity of the images in the database and the complexity of the objects in the query.
A temporal neurofuzzy model for rule-based systems
Alpaslan, Ferda Nur; Jain, L (1997-05-23)
This paper reports the development of a temporal neuro-fuzzy model using fuzzy reasoning which is capable of representing the temporal information. The system is implemented as a feedforward multilayer neural network. The learning algorithm is a modification of the backpropagation algorithm. The system is aimed to be used in medical diagnosis systems.
A Genetic Algorithms Based Classifier for Object Classification in Images
Yilmaz, Turgay; Yildirim, Yakup; Yazıcı, Adnan (2011-09-28)
Increase in the use of digital images has shown the need for modeling and querying the semantic content, which is usually defined using the objects in the images. In this paper, a Genetic Algorithm (GA) based object classification mechanism is developed for extracting the content of images. Objects are defined by using the Best Representative and Discriminative Feature (BRDF) model, where features are MPEG-7 descriptors. The classifier improves itself in time, with the genetic operations of GA.
An image retrieval system based on region classification
Özcanli-Özbay, Özge Can; Yarman Vural, Fatoş Tunay; Department of Computer Engineering (2004)
In this thesis, a Content Based Image Retrieval (CBIR) system to query the objects in an image database is proposed. Images are represented as collections of regions after being segmented with Normalized Cuts algorithm. MPEG-7 content descriptors are used to encode regions in a 239-dimensional feature space. User of the proposed CBIR system decides which objects to query and labels exemplar regions to train the system using a graphical interface. Fuzzy ARTMAP algorithm is used to learn the mapping between f...
