Performance vs computational efficiency for optimizing single and dynamic MRFs: Setting the state of the art with primal-dual strategies

Abstract : In this paper we introduce a novel method to address minimization of static and dynamic MRFs. Our approach is based on principles from linear programming and, in particular, on primal-dual strategies. It generalizes prior state-of-the-art methods such as @a-expansion, while it can also be used for efficiently minimizing NP-hard problems with complex pair-wise potential functions. Furthermore, it offers a substantial speedup - of a magnitude 10 - over existing techniques, due to the fact that it exploits information coming not only from the original MRF problem, but also from a dual one. The proposed technique consists of recovering pair of solutions for the primal and the dual such that the gap between them is minimized. Therefore, it can also boost performance of dynamic MRFs, where one should expect that the new pair of primal-dual solutions is closed to the previous one. Promising results in a number of applications, and theoretical, as well as numerical comparisons with the state of the art demonstrate the extreme potentials of this approach.
