This paper proposes a new algorithm for image recognition, which consists of (i) modeling categories as a set of distinctive parts that are discovered automatically, (ii) aligning them across images while learning their visual model, and, finally (iii) encode images as sets of part descriptors. The so-obtained parts are free of any appearance constraint and are optimized to allow the distinction between the categories to be recognized. The algorithm starts by extracting a set of random regions… CONTINUE READING
