Feature Extraction from Noisy Image Using Intersecting Cortical Model
This paper introduces an efficient approach for feature extraction from noisy image using Intersecting Cortical Model(ICM), which is a simplified model of Pulse-Coupled Neural Network(PCNN). In our research, the entropy sequence of the output image, is obtained from the original gray image by ICM, as feature vector of the gray image, which can be used to represent the gray image, and this has been proved by our experiments. Consequently, it is used in the image classification, and the mean square error (MSE) between the feature vector of the input image and the standard feature vector is used to judge to which image groups the input image belongs. It has been proved that the method is not sensitivity with the Gaussian noise, salt and pepper noise or both of this and greatly robust for image recognition.
