The compositional nature of visual objects significantly limits their representation complexity and renders learning of structured object models tractable. Adopting this modeling strategy we both (i) automatically decompose objects into a hierarchy of relevant compositions and we (ii) learn such a compositional representation for each category without supervision. The compositional structure supports feature sharing already on the lowest level of small image patches. Compositions are… CONTINUE READING
