Abstract : This chapter presents an approach for texture and object recognition that uses scale- or affine-invariant local image features in combination with a discriminative classifier. Textures are represented using a visual dictionary found by quantizing appearance-based descriptors of local features. Object classes are represented using a dictionary of composite semi-local parts, or groups of nearby features with stable and distinctive appearance and geometric layout. A discriminative maximum entropy framework is used to learn the posterior distribution of the class label given the occurrences of parts from the dictionary in the training et. Experiments on two texture and two object databases demonstrate the effectiveness of this framework for visual classification.
