A multiclass classification problem can be reduced to a collection of binary problems using an error-correcting coding matrix that specifies the binary partitions of the classes. The final classifier is an ensemble of base classifiers learned on binary problems and its performance is affected by two major factors: the qualities of the base classifiers and(More)
Feature selection is one of the fundamental problems in pattern recognition and data mining. A popular and effective approach to feature selection is based on information theory, namely the mutual information of features and class variable. In this paper we compare eight different mutual information-based feature selection methods. Based on the analysis of(More)
In this paper, we propose a robust approach to super-resolution static sprite generation from multiple low-resolution images. Considering both short-term and long-term motion influences, a hybrid global motion estimation technique is first presented for sprite generation. An iterative super-resolution reconstruction algorithm is then proposed for the(More)
In this paper, we propose a novel multi-class graph boosting algorithm to recognize different visual objects. The proposed method treats subgraph as feature to construct base classifier, and utilizes popular error correcting output code scheme to solve multi-class problem. Both factors, base classifier and error-correcting coding matrix are considered(More)
In this paper, we formulate the feature clustering problem for vehicle detection and tracking as a general MAP problem and solve it using MCMC. The proposed approach exhibits two advantages over existing methods: general Bayesian model can handle arbitrary objective functions and MCMC guarantees global optimal solution. Our algorithm is validated on(More)
The combination of image mosaicing and super-resolution imaging, i.e. superresolution mosaicing, is a powerful means of representing all the information of multiple overlapping images to obtain a high resolution broad view of a scene. In most current image acquisition systems, images are routinely compressed prior to transmission and storage. In this paper,(More)
In this paper, we propose some extensions of an efficient gradient-based image registration method called the inverse compositional algorithm. Specifically, these extensions include cumulative multi-image registration and incorporations of illumination change and lens distortion correction. By combining these extensions, we propose efficient cumulative(More)
In this paper we propose a new algorithm for region-based image categorization that is formulated as a multiple instance learning (MIL) problem. The proposed algorithm transforms the MIL problem into a traditional supervised learning problem, and solves it using a standard supervised learning method. The features used in the proposed algorithm are the(More)
