crowdkit.aggregation.image_segmentation.segmentation_em.SegmentationEM | Source code

    n_iter: int = 10,
    tol: float = 1e-05

The EM algorithm for the image segmentation task.

This method performs a categorical aggregation task for each pixel: should it be included to the resulting aggregate or no. This task is solved by the single coin Dawid-Skene algorithm. Each worker has a latent parameter "skill" that shows the probability of this worker to answer correctly. Skills and true pixels' labels are optimized by the Expectation-Maximization algorithm.

Parameters Description

Parameters Type Description
n_iter int

A number of EM iterations.

segmentations_ Series

Tasks' segmentations. A pandas.Series indexed by task such that labels.loc[task] is the tasks's aggregated segmentation.
