Context is critical for minimising ambiguity in object detection. In this work, a novel context modelling framework is proposed without the need of any prior scene segmentation or context annotation. This is achieved by exploring a new polar geometric histogram descriptor for context representation. In order to quantify context, we formulate a new context risk function and a maximum margin context (MMC) model to solve the minimization problem of the risk function. Crucially, the usefulness and… CONTINUE READING
