Image Structure and Syntax for Recognition

Image Structure and Syntax for Recognition

This video was recorded at Joint IAPR International Workshops on Structural and Syntactic Pattern Recognition (SSPR) and Statistical Techniques in Pattern Recognition (SPR), Cesme 2010. What general purpose image representation could serve the diverse needs of image recognition? How to represent the spectral and spatial structure of an image? What makes good image syntax? How do we evaluate it? In this paper, we present partial answers to these and related questions. The syntax we present is defined in terms of image regions, or segments. It captures the recursive embedding of all regions, their geometric and photometric properties, and their spatial layout. We discuss its invariance to changes in imaging conditions (e.g., lighting, scale, orientation), and its ability to isolate and... Show More
