  title={Local Descriptors Optimized for Average Precision},
  author={Kun He and Yan Lu and Stan Sclaroff},
Extraction of local feature descriptors is a vital stage in the solution pipelines for numerous computer vision tasks. Learning-based approaches improve performance in certain tasks, but still cannot replace handcrafted features in general. In this paper, we improve the learning of local feature descriptors by optimizing the performance of descriptor… CONTINUE READING
