Skin Cancer Classification from Dermoscopic Images using Feature Extraction Methods
Various feature descriptors like local binary pattern (LBP), complete LBP (CLBP) and their variants, which are based on histogram mapping such as uniform, rotation invariants and rotation invariant uniform patterns are employed for accurate identification and classification of melanoma as benign or malignant.


Texture Classification Using Dense Micro-Block Difference
It is demonstrated that the dense micro-block difference features proposed have dimensionality much lower than Scale Invariant Feature Transform (SIFT) and can be computed using integral image much faster than SIFT.
A Feature Descriptor Based on Local Normalized Difference for Real-World Texture Classification
Compared to local-binary-pattern-based descriptors, the proposed NDV takes full advantage of the local difference, and the size can be extended flexibly to cover a large local region.
Combining LBP Difference and Feature Correlation for Texture Description
The proposed descriptor, termed the covariance and LBPD descriptor (COV-LBPD), is able to capture the intrinsic correlation between the LBPD and other features in a compact manner and achieves promising results on publicly available data sets.

The proposed unconventional random feature extraction is simple, yet by leveraging the sparse nature of texture images, the approach outperforms traditional feature extraction methods which involve careful design and complex steps and leads to significant improvements in classification accuracy and reductions in feature dimensionality.
Dynamic Texture Recognition Using Multiscale Binarized Statistical Image Features
By extending the BSIF-TOP descriptor to a multiresolution scheme, the descriptor is able to capture the spatio-temporal content of an image sequence at multiple scales, improving its representation capacity.
Dynamic Texture Recognition Using Volume Local Binary Count Patterns With an Application to 2D Face Spoofing Detection
As an effective spatiotemporal descriptor, CVLBC can well describe the differences between facial videos of valid users and impostors, thus achieving good performance for face spoofing detection.
Multiresolution Gray-Scale and Rotation Invariant Texture Classification with Local Binary Patterns
A generalized gray-scale and rotation invariant operator presentation that allows for detecting the "uniform" patterns for any quantization of the angular space and for any spatial resolution and presents a method for combining multiple operators for multiresolution analysis.
Rotation Invariant Texture Description Using Symmetric Dense Microblock Difference
Novel rotation invariant feature, symmetric dense microblock difference (SDMD), is proposed which captures the information at different orientations and scales and outperforms the state of the art in texture classification.
Local Higher-Order Statistics (LHS) for Texture Categorization and Facial Analysis
This paper proposes a new image representation for texture categorization and facial analysis, relying on the use of higher-order local differential statistics as features, which consistently achieves state-of-the-art performance on challenging texture and facialAnalysis datasets outperforming contemporary methods.
