Quantum Inspired Meta-Heuristics for Image Analysis
Dey, Sandip, Bhattacharyya, Siddhartha, Maulik, Ujjwal
INTRODUCES QUANTUM INSPIRED TECHNIQUES FOR IMAGE ANALYSIS FOR PURE AND TRUE GRAY SCALE/COLOR IMAGES IN A SINGLE/MULTI-OBJECTIVE ENVIRONMENT
This book will entice readers to design efficient meta-heuristics for image analysis in the quantum domain. It introduces them to the essence of quantum computing paradigm, its features, and properties, and elaborates on the fundamentals of different meta-heuristics and their application to image analysis. As a result, it will pave the way for designing and developing quantum computing inspired meta-heuristics to be applied to image analysis.
Quantum Inspired Meta-heuristics for Image Analysis begins with a brief summary on image segmentation, quantum computing, and optimization. It also highlights a few relevant applications of the quantum based computing algorithms, meta-heuristics approach, and several thresholding algorithms in vogue. Next, it discusses a review of image analysis before moving on to an overview of six popular meta-heuristics and their algorithms and pseudo-codes. Subsequent chapters look at quantum inspired meta-heuristics for bi-level and gray scale multi-level image thresholding; quantum behaved meta-heuristics for true color multi-level image thresholding; and quantum inspired multi-objective algorithms for gray scale multi-level image thresholding. Each chapter concludes with a summary and sample questions.
