Markov Random Field in Image Processing

Markov random fields have recently been used in image processing with great success. It unifies many ad hoc methods invented previously. This talk covers the development of Markov random field in image restoration and segmentation. Also covered are its applications to SAR (Synthetic Aperture Radar) imagery and some current challenging problems in this area. In addition, I will discuss briefly the modern statistical concepts of Gibbs sampler and simulated annealing.
