We show that efficient object recognition can be obtained by combining informative features with linear classification. The results demonstrate the superiority of informative class-specific features, as compared with generic type features such as wavelets, for the task of object recognition. We show that information rich features can reach optimal performance with simple linear separation rules, while generic feature based classifiers require more complex classification schemes. This is…

Finding good features for object recognition
TLDR
An on-line algorithm is described that takes one model image from a known category and builds an efficient “same” vs. “different” classification cascade by predicting the most discriminative feature set for that object.
Shared Features for Multiclass Object Detection
TLDR
This work presents a 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).

Supervised Learning and Classification of Multi-class Objects Using Kernel Trick
TLDR
A novel multi-class object classification technique is proposed in this paper which uses kernel tricks for extracting nonlinear features and employs eigenvectors for separating object classes in the extracted features and, therefore, does not require any conventional classifiers for the classification.

TLDR
There are several arguments which support the observed high accuracy of SVMs, which are reviewed and numerous examples and proofs of most of the key theorems are given.
Visual features of intermediate complexity and their use in classification

It is shown that intermediate complexity (IC) features are optimal for the basic visual task of classification and suggest a specific role for IC features in visual processing and a principle for their extraction.

Results suggest that the improvement in performance is due to the component-based approach and the ACC data classification architecture, which is capable of locating partially occluded views of people and people whose body parts have little contrast with the background.

TLDR
A near-real-time computer system that can locate and track a subject's head, and then recognize the person by comparing characteristics of the face to those of known individuals, and that is easy to implement using a neural network architecture.
