In this paper we borrow concepts from Information Theory and Statistical Mechanics to perform a pattern recognition procedure on a set of X-ray hazelnut images.

Abstract

In this paper we borrow concepts from Information Theory and Statistical Mechanics to perform a pattern recognition procedure on a set of X-ray hazelnut images. We identify two relevant statistical scales, whose ratio affects the performance of a machine learning algorithm based on statistical observables, and discuss the dependence of such scales on the image resolution. Finally, by averaging the performance of a Support Vector Machines algorithm over a set of training samples, we numerically verify the predicted onset of an "optimal" scale of resolution, at which the pattern recognition is favoured. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.
