I understand how EM is used in the sense of estimating the Gaussian model that underlies a set of data, but its unclear how this is applicable.
I am trying to understand how EM might be used to perform data mining on any sort of computer vision/image processing task. This is the domain I am most familiar with, so it is helpful when learning about new algorithms to frame them in a familiar framework.
So one again, how and where is expectation maximization used in data mining images? Thank you
