Image Segmentation

THis section describes the functions that perform image segmentation using different techniques. These functions allow to extract parts of the image that can be associated with objects of the real world. Watershed and gradient segmentation are region-based methods to split image into the distinctive areas.
Background/foreground segmentation allows for distinguishing between moving objects and stable areas of the background.

Product and Performance Information


Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
