Business Segment

A division or subset of a business' operations, especially in large corporations. For a division to be considered a segment, it must directly earn revenue for the company. For example, a heavily diversified corporation may have one segment dedicated to telecommunications, another to manufacturing, and a third to energy. It is also known simply as a segment. Internally, each segment's expenses and revenues are accounted for separately.

The proposed liver tumor segmentation framework is illustrated in Figure 1.
As shown in Figure 2, the results of confidence connected segmentation were affected by the selection of multiplicative factor l.
The first step, a new branch of CNN is added to the streamline of Deep Sliding Shapes to learn point-wise features of 3D amodal RoI(proposals), this new branch shares the same convolution layers with existing 3D RPN, this step allows for parallel computation between two branches without additional time for instance segmentation. The second step, a 3D RoIAlign layer is build to jointly learn the 3D geometric features with the 2D color features, and corrects the misalignment between 3D amodal RoI and the extracted features.
A3IS-CNN uses the same two sub-network and adds 3D instance segmentation sub-network(called A3IS branch) to Deep Sliding Shapes.
"The main benefit of segmentation for sales is the same as that for marketing: Breaking the prospect/customer universe down into smaller groups allows both organizations to graduate from speaking to the lowest common denominator to wants/needs that are more relevant and therefore effective but not as broadly shared," explains Mark Magnacca, president and cofounder of Allego, a company that provides online sales training tools.
The result shows that this method can efficiently improve classification accuracy when combined with segmentation parameter optimization methods, such as an improved grid search algorithm.
Healthy tissues extraction can help to provide GBM structure segmentation, and atlas-based approaches have been used in this way.
