Findings from Ghent University Has Provided New Data on Information Technology (A framework for edge detection based on relief functions)

August 5, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Information Technology Newsweekly -- Fresh data on Information Technology are presented in a new report. According to news reporting out of Ghent, Belgium, by VerticalNews editors, research stated, "In this work we introduce a novel edge detection framework based on the measurement of grey level changes using a new class of functions called relief functions. We first analyze such functions and propose a construction method based on binary functions."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from Ghent University, "We also study several properties of the binary functions, how they affect the relief functions and their application in our edge detection framework. Moreover, we compare the results obtained by the proposed framework with those by the Canny method on both general-purpose and problem-specific images."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "The experimental results show that the methods embodying the proposed framework using relief functions are competitive with the Canny method, while providing higher flexibility."
