Non-negative matrix factorization (NMF) has previously been shown to be a useful decomposition tool for multivari-ate data. Non-negative bases allow strictly additive combinations which have been shown to be part-based as well as relatively sparse. We pursue a discriminative decomposition by coupling NMF objective with a maximum margin classifier,(More)
We present a novel learning-based framework for zooming and recognizing images of digits obtained from vehicle registration plates, which have been blurred using an unknown kernel. We model the image as an undirected graphical model over image patches in which the compatibility functions are represented as nonparametric kernel densities. The crucial feature(More)
In this paper, we present a novel learning based framework for performing super-resolution using multiple images. We model the image as an undirected graphical model over image patches in which the compatibility functions are represented as non-parametric kernel densities which are learnt from training data. The observed images are translation rectified and(More)
Several researchers have reported a considerable degree of natural out-crossing in pigeonpea from different environments. This paper reviews the subject with respect to the variation for natural out-crossability, pollinating vectors, extent of natural out-crossing, isolation specifications, and the possible utilization of natural out-crossing in pigeonpea(More)
In this paper we present a novel learning based method for restoring and recognizing images of digits that have been blurred using an unknown kernel. The novelty of our work is an iterative loop that alternates between recognition and restoration stages. In the restoration stage we model the image as an undirected graphical model over the image patches with(More)
In this paper we present a supervised learning approach for object-category specific restoration, recognition and segmentation of images which are blurred using an unknown kernel. The feature of this work is a multi layer graphical model which unifies the low level vision task of restoration, and the high level vision task of recognition in a cooperative(More)
Automated robust segmentation of intra-ventricular septum (IVS) from B-mode echocardiographic images is an enabler for early quantification of cardiac disease. Segmentation of septum from ultrasound images is very challenging due to variations in intensity/contrast in and around the septum, speckle noise and non-rigid shape variations of the septum(More)
In this paper we present a symmetric KL divergence based agglomerative clustering framework to segment multiple levels of depigmentation in Vitiligo images. The proposed framework starts with a simple merge cost based on symmetric KL divergence. We extend the recent body of work related to Bregman divergence based agglomerative clustering and prove that the(More)
