We present a few applications of the neural active contour model described in [1] The model which a neural network based on the principles of self-organization, exploits the principles of spatial isomorphism and self-organization in order to create flexible contours for characterizing shapes in images. We illustrate the versatility of the model by presenting its applications to the problems of boundary extraction, stereo vision, biomedical image analysis and digital image libraries. Only the essential ideas are described here.
