Abstract: In this paper we show that the non-extensive Tsallis entropy, when used as kernel in the bio-inspired firefly algorithm for multi-thresholding in image segmentation, is more efficient than using the traditional crossentropy resented in the literature. The firefly algorithm is a swarm-based meta-heuristic, inspired by fireflies-seeking behavior following their luminescence. We show that the use of more convex kernels, as those based on non-extensive entropy, is more effective at 5 % of significance level than the cross-entropy counterpart when applied in synthetic spaces for searching thresholds in global minimum
