The basic problem for a mobile vision system is determining where it is located within the world. In this paper, a recognition system is presented that is capable of identifying known places such as rooms and corridors. The system relies on a bag of features approach using locally prominent image regions. Real-world locations are modeled using a mixture of Gaussians representation, thus allowing for a multimodal scene characterization. Local regions are represented by a set of 108 statistical… 
Optimization of the hölder image descriptor using a genetic algorithm
TLDR
A local descriptor based on the Hölder exponent, a measure of signal regularity, is studied to find an optimal number of dimensions for the descriptor using a genetic algorithm (GA) to guide the search.
Descriptor Generation and Optimization for a Specific Outdoor Environment
TLDR

Evolutionary Feature Selection for Probabilistic Object Recognition, Novel Object Detection and Object Saliency Estimation using GMMs
TLDR
This paper presents a method for object recognition, novel object detection, and estimation of the most salient object within a set using a Genetic Algorithm and results on the COIL-100 data set confirm the soundness of the approach.
Context-based vision system for place and object recognition
TLDR
A low-dimensional global image representation is presented that provides relevant information for place recognition and categorization, and it is shown how such contextual information introduces strong priors that simplify object recognition.
Synthesis of interest point detectors through genetic programming
TLDR
This work uses the repeatability rate that is applied as a benchmark metric in computer vision literature as part of the GP fitness function, together with a measure of the entropy related with the point distribution across the image.
Discovering objects and their location in images
TLDR
This work treats object categories as topics, so that an image containing instances of several categories is modeled as a mixture of topics, and develops a model developed in the statistical text literature: probabilistic latent semantic analysis (pLSA).

TLDR
It is shown how the proposed methodology applies to the problems of blob detection, junction detection, edge detection, ridge detection and local frequency estimation and how it can be used as a major mechanism in algorithms for automatic scale selection, which adapt the local scales of processing to the local image structure.

TLDR
A novel approach that uses genetic programming as a learning framework that generates a specific type of low-level feature extractor: interest point detector, which is comparable with the Harris operator given their excellent repeatability rate.
A Performance Evaluation of Local Descriptors
TLDR
It is observed that the ranking of the descriptors is mostly independent of the interest region detector and that the SIFT-based descriptors perform best and Moments and steerable filters show the best performance among the low dimensional descriptors.
