English abstract:
We introduce TopoCut: a new way to integrate knowledge
about topological properties (TPs) into random ï eld
image segmentation model. Instead of including TPs as
additional constraints during minimization of the energy
function, we devise an efï cient algorithm for modifying
the unary potentials such that the resulting segmentation
is guaranteed with the desired properties. Our method is
more ï'exible in the sense that it handles more topology
constraints than previous methods, which were only able
to enforce pairwise or global connectivity. In particular,
our method is very fast, making it for the ï rst time possible
to enforce global topological properties in practical image
segmentation tasks.
