Evaluation of Color Based Keypoints and Features for the Classification of Melanomas Using the Bag-of-Features Model


Dermatologists consider color as one of the major discriminative aspects of melanoma. In this paper we evaluate the importance of color in the keypoint detection and description steps of the Bag-of-Features model. We compare the performance of gray scale against that of color sampling methods using Harris Laplace detector and its color extensions. Moreover… (More)
