<p><b>Abstract</b>—We present a prediction-and-verification segmentation scheme using attention images from multiple fixations. A major advantage of this scheme is that it can handle a large number of different deformable objects presented in complex backgrounds. The scheme is also relatively efficient. The system was tested to segment hands in sequences of intensity images, where each sequence represents a hand sign in American Sign Language. The experimental result showed a 95 percent correct segmentation rate with a 3 percent false rejection rate.</p>
