It's Bound to Be Right
March/April 2002 (vol. 4 no. 2)
pp. 86-89

We recently used a Monte Carlo method for eliminating double counting. The same idea is useful for characterizing the "state" of an image auotomatically, which is particularly interesting because photographs and digital images have become so commonplace. Automatic detection of change of state is suddenly desirable. What we do is compute a multiplicative factor ?, which we use to tighten the Bonferroni bound on the size of a union of sets, assuming we already know the individual sizes of the sets. We then obtain a new bound that is more accurate and useful.
