Enhanced Object Recognition in Cortex-Like Machine Vision

Abstract : This paper reports an extension of the previous MIT and Caltech’s cortex-like machine vision models of Graph-Based Visual Saliency (GBVS) and Feature Hierarchy Library (FHLIB), to remedy some of the undesirable drawbacks in these early models which improve object recognition efficiency. Enhancements in three areas, a) extraction of features from the most salient region of interest (ROI) and their rearrangement in a ranked manner, rather than random extraction over the whole image as in the previous models, b) exploitation of larger patches in the C1 and S2 layers to improve spatial resolutions, c) a more versatile template matching mechanism without the need of ‘pre-storing’ physical locations of features as in previous models, have been the main contributions of the present work. The improved model is validated using 3 different types of datasets which shows an average of ~7% better recognition accuracy over the original FHLIB model.
