Texture classification based on DCT and soft computing

By Golam Sorwar, A. Abraham and Laurence S. Dooley


We present a classification method based on the discrete cosine transform (DCT) coefficients of texture image. Since the DCT works on gray level images, the color scheme of each image is transformed into gray levels. For classifying the images with DCT, we used two popular soft computing techniques, namely neurocomputing and neuro-fuzzy computing. We used a feedforward neural network trained by backpropagation algorithm and an evolving fuzzy neural network to classify the textures. The soft computing models were trained using 80% of the texture data and remaining was used for testing and validation purposes. A performance comparison was made among the soft computing models for the texture classification problem. We also analyzed the effects of prolonged training of neural networks. It was observed that the proposed neuro-fuzzy model performed better than neural network
