SEMANTIC GRAPHS AND ARC CONSISTENCY CHECKING - The Renewal of an Old Approach for Information Extraction from Images

Aline Deruyver, Yann Hodé

Abstract

The aim of this paper is to show that symbolic computation based on constraint satisfaction can be useful for information extraction from images. It presents how some limitations of this approach have been overcome by the development of new conceptual tools: arc-consistency with bilevel constraints, weak arc-consistency, a system of complex qualitative spatial relations. The application of these tools to images of various domains (medical images, high resolution satellite images) shows its effectivity.
