TITLE: Visual Learning of Categories using Epitome
PRESENTER: Katarina Mele
AFFILIATION: School of Computer Science & Engineering and National ICT Australia
DATE: Friday 15th October 2004
TIME: 12 noon - 1 pm
PLACE: CSE K17 1st Floor Seminar Room
In the presentation the problem of appearance based classification methods will be addressed. The proposed presentation of a class is inspired by a generative statistical model called "epitome". The epitome of an image is its miniature, condensed version containing the essence of the textural and shape properties of an image. In order to obtain a model for classification geometrical information is added into the epitome. The applicability of such presentation to object classification will be discussed.
