Using a Self-Organized Map to arrange composition.

Posted: March 17, 2016 at 9:12 pm

The following images show some very early work using a SOM (implemented in ANNetGPGPU) to arrange the montages of segmented regions. Rather than sorting according to single parameters, e.g. colour, the composition should reflect the similarity of regions across all parameters. In the first image, I used the wrong segment directory where I did not tweak the overexposed sky. The result is a number of very large white regions at the bottom. While all regions are clearly organized according to their colour parameters, the clusters don’t look right. I think I messed up some of the code mapping the 1D BMU IDs with 2D positions in the SOM lattice.
