In this paper a connectionist network is presented for segmenting gray level images. The network detects the local peaks in the inverted histogram which will correspond to the bottoms of the valleys in the actual histogram. The neural network implementation successfully uses circumstantial evidence and detects multiple winners over the entire range of gray values such that these winners correspond to multiple thresholds for segmenting the image. The dynamics of the network has been analyzed and and the conditions for convergence have been established. Experimental results obtained by applying the network for segmenting two X-ray images are presented. The results obtained are promising. © 1992 IEEE.
