Context Exploitation using Hierarchical Bayesian Models

  title={Context Exploitation using Hierarchical Bayesian Models},
  author={Christopher A. George and P. Banerjee and Kendra E. Moore},
We consider the problem of how to improve automatic target recognition by fusing the naive sensor-level classification decisions with "intuition," or context, in a mathematically principled way. This is a general approach that is compatible with many definitions of context, but for specificity, we consider context as co-occurrence in imagery. In particular, we consider images that contain multiple objects identified at various confidence levels. We learn the patterns of co-occurrence in each… Expand

We present a new dataset with the goal of advancing the state-of-the-art in object recognition by placing the question of object recognition in the context of the broader question of sceneExpand

The No-U-turn sampler: adaptively setting path lengths in Hamiltonian Monte Carlo
The No-U-Turn Sampler (NUTS), an extension to HMC that eliminates the need to set a number of steps L, and derives a method for adapting the step size parameter {\epsilon} on the fly based on primal-dual averaging. Expand
