Learning Policies for Efficiently Identifying Objects of Many Classes
Viola and Jones (VJ) cascade classification methods have proven to be very successful in detecting objects belonging to a single class -- e.g., faces. This paper addresses the more challenging "many class detection" problem: detecting and identifying objects that belong to any of a set of classes. We use a set of learned weights (corresponding to the parameters of a set of binary linear separators) to identify these objects. We show that objects within many real-world classes tend to form clusters in this induced "classifier space". As the result of a sequence of classifiers can suggest a possible label for each object, we formulate this task as a Markov Decision Process. Our system first uses a "decision tree classifier" (i.e., a policy produced using dynamic programming) to specify when to apply which classifier to produce a possible class label for each sub-image W of a test image. This corresponds to a leaf of the decision tree. It then uses a cascade...
