Abstract
This paper presents a learning based codebook design algorithm for vector quantization of digital images using evolution strategies (ES). This technique embeds evolution strategies into the standard competitive learning vector quantization algorithm (CLVQ) and efficiently overcomes its problems of under-utilization of neurons and initial codebook dependency. The embedding of ES greatly increases the algorithm’s capability of avoiding the local minimums, leading to global optimization. Experimental results demonstrate that it can obtain significant improvement over CLVQ and other comparable algorithms in image compression applications. In comparison with the FSLVQ and KSOM algorithms, this new technique is computationally more efficient and requires less training time.
