Kernel Sharing With Joint Boosting For Multi-Class Concept Detection
Object/scene detection by discriminative kernel-based classification has gained great interest due to its promising performance and flexibility. In this paper, unlike traditional approaches that independently build binary classifiers to detect individual concepts, we proposed a new framework for multi-class concept detection based on kernel sharing and joint learning. By sharing "good" kernels among concepts, accuracy of individual weak detectors can be greatly improved; by joint learning of common detectors among classes, the required kernels and the computational complexity for detecting each individual concept can be reduced. We demonstrated our approach by developing an extended JointBoost framework, which was used to choose the optimal kernel and subset of sharing classes in an iterative boosting process. In addition, we constructed multiresolution visual vocabularies by hierarchical clustering and computed kernels based on spatial matching. We tested our method in dete...
