The purpose of this paper it to explore the relationship between the rate-distortion (R-D) characteristics of multiscale binary shape and Markov Random Field (MRF) parameters. In our experiments, we consider two prior models. The first MRF model takes into account pair-wise interaction between pels, and for the binary case, is typically referred to as the auto-logistic model; the second MRF model accounts for higher order spatial interactions and is referred to as the Chien model. Experimental results indicate that the autologistic model is not sufficient to characterize the R-D characteristics of multiscale binary shape data. However, higher order models, such as the Chien model, do seem feasible. We propose to use the statistical moments of the Chien model as input to a neural network to accurately predict the rate and distortion of the binary shape when coded at various scales.
