Real-Time Visual Concept Classification
As datasets grow increasingly large in content-based image and video retrieval, computational efficiency of concept classification is important. This paper reviews techniques to accelerate concept classification, where we show the trade-off between computational efficiency and accuracy. As a basis, we use the Bag-ofWords algorithm that in the 2008 benchmarks of TRECVID and PASCAL lead to the best performance scores. We divide the evaluation in three steps: 1) Descriptor Extraction, where we evaluate SIFT, SURF, DAISY, and Semantic Textons. 2) Visual Word Assignment, where we compare a k-means visual vocabulary with a Random Forest and evaluate subsampling, dimension reduction with PCA, and division strategies of the Spatial Pyramid. 3) Classification, where we evaluate the 2, RBF, and Fast Histogram Intersection kernel for the SVM. Apart from the evaluation, we accelerate the calculation of densely sampled SIFT and SURF, accelerate nearest neighbor assignment, and improve accuracy of t...
