Shape Priors

In this project, we introduce into classical image segmentation methods some prior knowledge about which shapes are likely to be in a given image. In particular, we develop metrics on spaces of shapes, statistical models of shape variation and dynamical models which allow to impose a statistical model of the temporal evolution of shape. The respective segmentation processes can cope with large amounts of background clutter, noise and partial or complete occlusions.
