A variational Bayesian algorithm for BSS problem with hidden Gauss-Markov Models for the sources

Author(s): Nadia Bali, Ali Mohammad-Djafari


In this paper we propose a Variational Bayesian estimation approach for Blind Sources Separation problem, as an alternative method to MCMC. The data are $M$ images and the sources are $N$ images which are assumed independent and piecewise homogeneous. To insure these properties, we propose a piecewise Gauss-Markov for the sources with a hidden classification variable which is modeled via a Potts-Markov field. A few simulation results are given to illustrate the performances of the proposed method and some comparison with other methods (MCMC and VBICA) used for BSS.
