Congratualtions to Guohao Yu for a Successful Proposal Defense!

Congratulations to our labmate Guahao Yu for successfully defending his research proposal!  Defending an oral research proposal is the second of four milestones to completing a Ph.D. at the University of Florida.  Guohao is planning to advance image segmentation techniques… Read More

Comparison of Possibilistic Fuzzy Local Information C-Means and Possibilistic K-Nearest Neighbors for Synthetic Aperture Sonar Image Segmentation

Abstract: Synthetic aperture sonar (SAS) imagery can generate high resolution images of the seafloor. Thus, segmentation algorithms can be used to partition the images into different seafloor environments. In this paper, we compare two possibilistic segmentation approaches. Possibilistic approaches allow… Read More

Possibilistic fuzzy local information C-means with automated feature selection for seafloor segmentation

Abstract: The Possibilistic Fuzzy Local Information C-Means (PFLICM) method is presented as a technique to segment side-look synthetic aperture sonar (SAS) imagery into distinct regions of the sea-floor. In this work, we investigate and present the results of an automated… Read More

Multiple-instance learning-based sonar image classification

Abstract: An approach to image labeling by seabed context based on multiple-instance learning via embedded instance selection (MILES) is presented. Sonar images are first segmented into superpixels with associated intensity and texture feature distributions. These superpixels are defined as the… Read More

Environmentally-Adaptive Target Recognition for SAS Imagery

Abstract: Characteristics of underwater targets displayed in synthetic aperture sonar (SAS) imagery vary depending on their environmental context. Discriminative features in sea grass may differ from the features that are discriminative in sand ripple, for example. Environmentally-adaptive target detection and… Read More

Hyperspectral Unmixing with Endmember Variability using Semi-supervised Partial Membership Latent Dirichlet Allocation

Abstract: A semi-supervised Partial Membership Latent Dirichlet Allocation approach is developed for hyperspectral unmixing and endmember estimation while accounting for spectral variability and spatial information. Partial Membership Latent Dirichlet Allocation is an effective approach for spectral unmixing while representing spectral… Read More
