This absence of standardization can lead to inaccurate interpretations and unexpected results, underscoring the inherent challenges of image segmentation, which lacks a definitive meaning. In computer graphics, segmentation refers to the division of a pixel collection into subsets, a concept that aligns with other scholarly interpretations, albeit with debated criteria. This process echoes human cognitive behaviour, specifically pattern recognition, amplifying the complexity of segmentation challenges. Various methodologies characterize the landscape of image segmentation, where one prevalent approach involves text retrieval to generate localized feature sets. Object recognition in computer science, which entails the automatic classification of objects, intertwines deeply with image segmentation, enhancing the understanding of objects within images. The chosen segmentation algorithm critically influences the overall outcome, necessitating meticulous selection tailored to specific frameworks. Despite the availability of numerous segmentation techniques, their complexity often deters practical research applications. This research delves into an enhanced graph cut method for distinguishing foreground and background elements through image labelling and segmentation. This approach is scrutinized against performance metrics to evaluate the efficacy of the proposed algorithm in image segmentation. By methodically comparing results, this study aims to provide insights into the algorithm's effectiveness, contributing to the broader discourse on segmentation techniques and their applicability in various vision-related fields.</p> Raman Gaur Toofan Mukherjee Akash Dadhich Copyright (c) 2024 https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nd/4.0 2023-09-30 2023-09-30 12 3 07 21 Optimizing Brain-Computer Interface Reception: A GUI Design for Enhanced Signal Acquisition from the Peripheral Nervous System https://www.ijnpme.org/index.php/IJNPME/article/view/209 <p>This paper presents a novel approach to optimizing the reception of brainwave signals from the Peripheral Nervous System (PNS) through the design of a Graphical User Interface (GUI) for Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) systems. The efficient acquisition of signals from the PNS is essential for the accurate interpretation of neural activity and subsequent interaction with external devices. Our proposed GUI design focuses on enhancing signal acquisition by providing intuitive visualization tools and real-time feedback mechanisms. Through a combination of user-centered design principles and advanced signal processing algorithms, the GUI facilitates the seamless integration of PNS signals into BCI systems, enabling more robust and responsive neurofeedback applications. We discuss the key features of our GUI design, its potential applications in neurorehabilitation, cognitive enhancement, and assistive technology, and outline future directions for research in this rapidly evolving field.</p> Dipannita Debasish Mondal Mukil Alagirisamy Copyright (c) 2024 https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nd/4.0 2023-09-30 2023-09-30 12 3 01 06
