Novelty detection is the identification of new or unknown data or signal that a machine learning system is not aware of during training. Novelty detection is one of the fundamental requirements of a good classification or identification system since sometimes the test data contains information about objects that were not known at the time of training the… (More)
Novelty detection is the ident ification of new or unknown data or signal that a machine learning system is not aware of during training. In this paper we focus on neural network based approaches for novelty detection. Statistical approaches are covered in part-I paper.
The evaluation of texture features is important for several image processing applications. Texture analysis forms the basis of object recognition and classification in several domains. There is a range of texture extraction methods and their performance evaluation is an important part of understanding the utility of feature extraction tools in image… (More)
—In this paper, we present a new framework for novelty detection. The framework evaluates neural networks as adaptive classifiers that are capable of novelty detection and retraining on the basis of newly discovered information. We apply our newly developed model to the application area of object recognition in video. This paper details the tools and… (More)
This paper proposes a new model of "novelty detection" for image sequence analysis using neural networks. This model uses the concept of artificially generated negative data to form closed decision boundaries using a multilayer perceptron. The neural network output is novelty filtered by thresholding the output of multiple networks (one per known class) to… (More)
In this paper we apply artificial neural networks for classifying texture data of various natural objects found in FLIR images. Hermite functions are used for texture feature extraction from segmented regions of interest in natural scenes taken as a video sequence. A total of 2680 samples for a total of twelve different classes are used for object… (More)
It is now well-established that k nearest-neighbour classi"ers o!er a quick and reliable method of data classi"cation. In this paper we extend the basic de"nition of the standard k nearest-neighbour algorithm to include the ability to resolve con#icts when the highest number of nearest neighbours are found for more than one training class (model-1). We also… (More)
Nearest Neighbour algorithms for pattern recognition have been widely studied. It is now well-established that they offer a quick and reliable method of data classification. In this paper we further develop the basic definition of the standard k-nearest neighbour algorithm to include the ability to resolve conflicts when the highest number of nearest… (More)
