Definitions for "Segmentation"
The act or process of dividing into segments; specifically (Biol.), a self-division into segments as a result of growth; cell cleavage; cell multiplication; endogenous cell formation.
Dividing the total market into smaller groups based on demographic, geographic or other variables common to them, to analyze and direct specific marketing efforts to them.
Process of subdividing customers into groups sharing characteristics and needs.
(or the "SEGMENTED ECONOMY", Taylor and Thrift, 1983 +) a segmented pattern of business organizations where every segment is "conceived as a number of organizations, with similar characteristics which are both the cause and the effect of their membership of particular economic niches."
identifying niches or subgroups within a market, generally with the aim of more targeted communication
A process by which the recognition engine breaks digital ink into input ranges. This occurs at a text, word and character level.
to break a solid structure into a number of usually equal size pieces.
means breaking down a word into word parts.
(embryology) the repeated division of a fertilised ovum
the division of a population into groups or clusters with common characteristics relevant to a brand's marketing
The division of a program or application into segments as part of a virtual memory scheme.
The process by which a mid-oceanic ridge is broken into smaller pieces or segments separated by transform faults.
The process of splitting a network into multiple segments. A multiport repeater is one device often used to segment LANs. In diagnostic terms, segmenting a network minimizes the difficulty of analyzing network faults. Rather than the whole network being inoperable, only the segment with the fault ceases to function.
The breaking up of a fault along its length into several smaller faults. This can happen as a result of other faults crossing it, topography changes, or bends in the strike of the faults. Segmentation can limit the length of faulting in a single earthquake to some fraction of the total fault length, thus also limiting the size of the earthquake.

The identification of objects above background noise using image-processing methods. Can be achieved by detecting either object boundaries (contour-orientated segmentation) or whole objects (region-based segmentation).
The process of fragmenting an SN-Data Protocol Data Unit (PDU) or SN-Unitdata PDU into a number of Link Service Data Units (LSDUs).
The process of grouping pixels that are nearly the same color into regions and blobs.
(the decomposition of a whole into its component parts according to some system (see system)). has been done with film, language and now texts
Segmentation is the tokenizing of text into syntactic memes. These units may then be aligned to create translation memories or extracted to terminology lexicons to be used by CAT tools. Segments may be phrases, sentences or whole paragraphs. Segmentation identifies the atoms to translate. Segmentation is intuitive to the skilled linguist, but challenging to the best MT.
Form of contraction of muscle in intestine that creates short segments of chyme; role is to mix chyme and enzymes to aid digestive function. Compare peristalsis.
A periodic squeezing or partitioning of the intestine at intervals along its length by its circular muscles.
process by which muscles in the intestines move food and wastes through the body.
A data mining technique that analyses data to discover mutually exclusive collections of records that share similar attributes sets. A segmentation algorithm can use unsupervised learning techniques such as clustering or supervised learning for a specific prediction field.
In , segmentation is the partitioning of a digital image into multiple regions (sets of pixels), according to a given criterion. The goal of segmentation is typically to locate objects of interest and is sometimes considered a computer vision problem. Unfortunately, many important segmentation algorithms are too simple to solve this problem accurately: they compensate for this limitation with their predictability, generality, and efficiency.
Keywords:  who've, subgroups, verse, subset, send
The selection and isolation of segments of a list.
A process of grouping your list into smaller subgroups based on certain criteria. Example of this would be sending a broadcast message to the people in your list who've purchased your product verse the subscribers who have not purchased yet.
The use of previously gathered information to send e-mails of a particular offer to a subset of the list.
Separation of functionality's according to some sort of layering. E.G.: Separation of the service functionality from the underlying physical implementation. source: EU-P103 domain: Information Model usage: EU-P103
subdivision of an organism into separate, repeating units. Specialization of a unit sometimes occurs. Example: earthworm
The option to take a proportion of the investment and leave the rest invested, i.e. to take 10% of your pension and leave the other 90% still invested.
This is setting up a number of pension schemes at the same time. It lets the member draw the pension benefits at different times. This only applies to personal pension schemes and retirement annuities . It is also called clustering .
a hot topic for video compression and interpolation
This refers to the categorization of different types of demand, which make sense in the decision-making or planning process. These segments have sufficient properties in common, that they can be treated similarly when investigating business developments or capacity management.
This means cutting big collision domains into smalls ones. It can be done by switches, routers, bridges...
a set of segments, that covers the respective domain component completely and without redundancy
