figure,imshow(BW2)
figure,imshow(BW)
% BW = activecontour(BW2, mask, 300);
similarity = jaccard (BW2, BW)
figure
imshowpair(BW2, BW)
title(['Jaccard Index = ' num2str(similarity)])
I am trying to find accuracy but got an error.
Undefined function 'jaccard' for input arguments of type 'uint8'.
Error in Untitled (line 8)
similarity = jaccard (BW2, BW)
what will be changed in this code?

Do you have the Image Processing Toolbox and are you using R2017b or later (it does help a lot if you fill in the Products and Release section of the question)? What does
which jaccard
show?

You have to Install MATLAB R2017b because jaccard was introduced in Image Processing Toolbox of R2017b.

Jaccard index is the intersection (BW.*BW2) over the union (BW|BW2) or ((BW+BW2)>0), so you can calculate directly like this
sum(sum( BW.*BW2)) / sum(sum( BW|BW2))
Accuracy is different, that is how many pixels are exactly the same (including background)
sum(sum(BW==BW2)) / prod(size(BW))

Hi,
Jaccard needs their arguments to be logical type. Check the data type of BW and BW2, surely they are uint8 type. If it's true, use BW=logical(BW) and the problem will be solved,
