In this experiment, we compare the four segmentation schemes with a fixed segmentation granularity (e.g., 32 x 32 x 32) on the join performance of the BIST-JOIN method by using the three datasets.
During the disease course, granularity appearance of the macula develops in most cases and, when seen, determines the diagnosis.
Terminologies on Evolving Granularity, Clustering Accuracy, and Parallelism
In Section 3 we introduce granularity principle in classification and clustering, framework, and specific process of the proposed classification algorithm.
The amount of information [X.sub.r] contained in the information granule is called the information granularity. If the domain [O.sub.r] is discrete, the information granularity represents the number of data contained [X.sub.r] in the information granule; if the domain is continuous, it represents the measure of the length of the information particle [X.sub.r].
