We introduce a new descriptor for images which allows the construction of efficient and compact classifiers with good accuracy on object category recognition. [...] Key Result Even when the representation is reduced to 200 bytes per image, classification accuracy on object category recognition is comparable with the state of the art (36% versus 42%), but at orders of magnitude lower computational cost.Expand

Methods for efficient object categorization, detection, scene recognition, and image search
TLDR
This thesis proposes methods to learn image representations to compactly represent a large collection of images, enabling accurate image recognition with linear classification models which offer the advantage of being efficient to both train and test. Expand
Meta-class features for large-scale object categorization on a budget
TLDR

Learning Image Representations for Efficient Recognition of Novel Classes
Introduction In this work we consider the problem of efficient object-class recognition in large image collections. We are specifically interested in scenarios where the classes to be recognized areExpand
PiCoDes: Learning a Compact Code for Novel-Category Recognition
TLDR
PICODES: a very compact image descriptor which nevertheless allows high performance on object category recognition and an alternation scheme and convex upper bound which demonstrate excellent performance in practice are presented. Expand
Attribute-Based Classification for Zero-Shot Visual Object Categorization
We study the problem of object recognition for categories for which we have no training examples, a task also called zero--data or zero-shot learning. This situation has hardly been studied inExpand
Heterogeneous Domain Adaptation : Learning Visual Classifiers from Textual Description
One of the main challenges for scaling up object recognition systems is the lack of annotated images for real-world categories. It is estimated that humans can recognize and discriminate among aboutExpand
Diverse Concept-Level Features for Multi-Object Classification
TLDR
This work uses existing human knowledge, the application context itself and the human categorization mechanism to reflect complex relations between concepts to give good representation of image classification, even if some important concepts failed to be recognized. Expand
Object Bank: An Object-Level Image Representation for High-Level Visual Recognition
TLDR
This paper analyzes the novel concept of object bank, a high-level image representation encoding object appearance and spatial location information in images, and demonstrates that object bank is a high level representation, from which it can easily discover semantic information of unknown images.

Learning to detect unseen object classes by between-class attribute transfer
TLDR
The experiments show that by using an attribute layer it is indeed possible to build a learning object detection system that does not require any training images of the target classes, and assembled a new large-scale dataset, “Animals with Attributes”, of over 30,000 animal images that match the 50 classes in Osherson's classic table of how strongly humans associate 85 semantic attributes with animal classes.

Recognition by association via learning per-exemplar distances
TLDR
This work uses the distance functions to detect and segment objects in novel images by associating the bottom-up segments obtained from multiple image segmentations with the exemplar regions and learns separate distance functions for each exemplar. Expand

TLDR
A recognition scheme that scales efficiently to a large number of objects and allows a larger and more discriminatory vocabulary to be used efficiently is presented, which it is shown experimentally leads to a dramatic improvement in retrieval quality. Expand
Semantic texton forests for image categorization and segmentation
TLDR
The proposed semantic texton forests are ensembles of decision trees that act directly on image pixels, and therefore do not need the expensive computation of filter-bank responses or local descriptors, and give at least a five-fold increase in execution speed. Expand
Learning object categories from Google's image search
TLDR
A new model, TSI-pLSA, is developed, which extends pLSA (as applied to visual words) to include spatial information in a translation and scale invariant manner, and can handle the high intra-class variability and large proportion of unrelated images returned by search engines. Expand
Caltech-256 Object Category Dataset
We introduce a challenging set of 256 object categories containing a total of 30607 images. The original Caltech-101 [1] was collected by choosing a set of object categories, downloading examplesExpand
Efficient Match Kernel between Sets of Features for Visual Recognition
TLDR
It is shown that bag-of-words representations commonly used in conjunction with linear classifiers can be viewed as special match kernels, which count 1 if two local features fall into the same regions partitioned by visual words and 0 otherwise. Expand

TLDR
Several models that aim at learning the correct weighting of different features from training data are studied, including multiple kernel learning as well as simple baseline methods and ensemble methods inspired by Boosting are derived. Expand
Describing objects by their attributes
We propose to shift the goal of recognition from naming to describing. Doing so allows us not only to name familiar objects, but also: to report unusual aspects of a familiar object (“spotty dog”,Expand
Sharing Visual Features for Multiclass and Multiview Object Detection
TLDR
A multitask learning procedure, based on boosted decision stumps, that reduces the computational and sample complexity by finding common features that can be shared across the classes (and/or views) and considerably reduce the computational cost of multiclass object detection. Expand
