The authors propose a new image block classification method. The proposed algorithm incorporates image context into the classification via pixel-based segmentation. To obtain a segmented image they adopt the stochastic model-based unsupervised image segmentation algorithm. Since the block classifier considers the grey level distribution in the block, it can differentiate edges from textures. Also, since the segmentation is executed independently at each small block, a parallel processor can be applied to obtain a real-time block classification.
