Natural scenes categorization by hierarchical extraction of typicality patterns
Natural scene categorization of images represents a very useful task for automatic image analysis systems in a wide variety of applications. In the literature, several methods have been proposed facing this issue with excellent results. Typically, features of several types are clustered so as to generate a vocabulary able to efficiently represent the considered image collection. This vocabulary is formed by a discrete set of visual codewords whose co-occurrence or composition allows to classify the scene category.
