For example, medical image data is often corrupted by intensity inhomogeneities and may contain outliers in the form of pathologies. In this paper we propose a global similarity measure that is robust to both intensity inhomogeneities and outliers without requiring prior knowledge of the type of outliers. We combine the normalised gradients of images with the cosine function and show that it is theoretically robust against a very general class of outliers.

Of the workforce strategies would have led to layoffs quite frankly and would have been very disruptive within the workplace, Iveson said. Chose not to cut that deep at this time, but that opportunity is always available to us in the future though depending on what happens in the coming months. Property tax increase will be broken down into three elements with one per cent going to the Edmonton Police Service, 0.8 per cent for the city LRT projects and 0.28 per cent toward growth in infrastructure and services..
