bayesImageS

`bayesImageS` implements algorithms for segmentation of 2D and 3D images, such as computed tomography (CT) and satellite remote sensing. This R package provides functions for Bayesian image analysis using a hidden Potts/Ising model with external field prior. Latent labels are updated using chequerboard Gibbs sampling or Swendsen-Wang. Algorithms for the smoothing parameter include:

• pseudolikelihood
• path sampling (thermodynamic integration)
• approximate exchange algorithm (AEA)
• approximate Bayesian computation (ABC-MCMC and ABC-SMC)
• Bayesian indirect likelihood (BIL), including the parametric functional approximate Bayesian (PFAB) algorithm

Installation Instructions

Stable releases, including binary packages for Windows & Mac OS, are available from CRAN:

``install.packages("bayesImageS")``

The current development version can be installed from Bitbucket:

``devtools::install_git("https://bitbucket.org/Azeari/bayesimages/")``

Example Usage

To generate synthetic data for a known value of β:

``````set.seed(1234)
k <- 3
beta <- 0.7
res.sw <- swNoData(beta, k, neigh, blocks, niter=200)
image(z, xaxt = 'n', yaxt='n', col=rainbow(k), asp=1)``````

Now add some Gaussian noise to the labels, according to the prior:

``````priors <- list()
priors\$k <- k
priors\$mu <- c(-2, 0, 2)
priors\$mu.sd <- rep(0.5,k)
priors\$sigma <- rep(0.25,k)
priors\$sigma.nu <- rep(3, k)
priors\$beta <- c(0,1.3*log(1 + sqrt(k)))

m0 <- sort(rnorm(priors\$k,priors\$mu,priors\$mu.sd))
SS0 <- priors\$sigma.nu*priors\$sigma^2
s0 <- 1/sqrt(rgamma(priors\$k,priors\$sigma.nu/2,SS0/2))
l <- as.vector(z)
y <- m0[l] + rnorm(nrow(neigh),0,s0[l])
library(lattice)

Image segmentation using ABC-SMC:

``````res.smc <- smcPotts(y, neigh, blocks, priors=priors)
#> Initialization took 3sec
#> Iteration 1
#> previous epsilon 7 and ESS 10000 (target: 9500)
#> Took 0sec to update epsilon=2.625 (ESS=9505.29)
#> Took 2sec for 8918 RWMH updates (bw=0.497509)
#> Took 1sec for 10000 iterations to calculate S(z)=7
#> Iteration 2

#> Took 14sec to update epsilon=1 (ESS=7970.86)

#> Took 1sec for 10000 iterations to calculate S(z)=6

#> Took 8sec to update epsilon=4.66632e-302 (ESS=7949.67)
#> Took 2sec for 7968 RWMH updates (bw=0.466673)
#> Took 1sec for 10000 iterations to calculate S(z)=7
# pixel classifications
pred <- res.smc\$alloc/rowSums(res.smc\$alloc)
plot(c(0.5,3.5),c(0.5,3.5),type='n',xaxt='n',yaxt='n',xlab="",ylab="",asp=1)
rasterImage(t(predMx)[nrow(mask):1,], 0.5, 0.5, 3.5, 3.5, interpolate = FALSE)``````

Note that CODA ignores the particle weights, so we need to resample to obtain accurate HPD intervals. This step is not usually necessary and does introduce some noise due to duplication of particles. Depending on how many SMC iterations have been performed, one or more resampling steps might have already been done (but not in this specific example).

``````seg <- max.col(res.smc\$alloc) # posterior mode (0-1 loss)
all.equal(seg, l)
#> [1] TRUE

# filter weights to remove Ninf, NaN
w <- res.smc\$wt
w[is.na(w)] <- 0
plot(density(res.smc\$beta, weights=w),main=expression(paste("Posterior for ",beta)))
abline(h=0,lty=3)
abline(v=beta,lty=2,col=4)
abline(v=log(1 + sqrt(k)),lty=3,col=2) # critical point``````

``````library(coda)
res.res <- testResample(res.smc\$beta, w, cbind(res.smc\$mu, res.smc\$sigma))
#> Took 0sec to resample 10000 particles
res.coda <- mcmc(cbind(res.res\$pseudo, res.res\$beta))
varnames(res.coda) <- c(paste("mu",1:k), paste("sd",1:k), "beta")
HPDinterval(res.coda)
