In this chapter it is assumed that a pattern is available which was preprocessed in the best possible way. Referring back to Sect. 1.2, where “analysis” and “description” were defined, it is necessary to decompose or to segment a pattern into simpler constituents or segmentation objects. Since the most important examples of complex patterns are images and connected speech, these will be treated in the following with emphasis on images.


Gray Level Optical Flow Speech Signal Image Point Automatic Speech Recognition 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
