In this paper, we describe the applicability of the K-means clustering algorithm for locating thresholds in a given histogram. In order to find optimal thresholds a probabilistic method called Multi-state Stochastic Connectionist Approach (MSCA) is em-ployed. Mean Field Annealing (MFA), a deterministic counterpart of MSCA, is also studied in this context. A parallel model to parallelize the above methods is presented. Results of MFA and MSCA are compared with that of the K-means algorithm.
