In this paper we consider the interaction between different semantic levels in still image scene classification and object detection problems. We present a method where a neural method is used to produce a tentative higher-level semantic scene representation from low-level statistical visual features in a bottom-up fashion. This emergent representation is then used to refine the lower-level object detection results. We evaluate the proposed method with data from Pascal VOC Challenge 2006 image… CONTINUE READING
