A graph network for image segmentation
Image segmentation as one of the oldest problems in image processing and computer vision is, despite of various attempts to solve it , not yet solved satisfactorily. Having in mind the huge capability of the human visual system, highly parallel and pipelined computation seems to be necessary for success in this field. According to Uhr  parallel-serial layered architectures are best suited for image analysis. In this sense, a new Layered Graph Network (LGN) was developed , which is presented and applied to the processing of simulated and real world images.
