Using Image Segmentation as a Basis for Categorization
Image categorization is the problem of classifying images into one or more of several possible categories or classes, which are defined in advance. Classifiers can be trained using machine learning algorithms, but existing machine learning algorithms cannot work with images directly. We consider a representation based on texture segmentation and a similarity measure which has been used successfully in the related area of image retrieval. A generalized kernel for use with the support vector machine (SVM) algorithm can be built from such a similarity measure. We compare this approach with a more straightforward representation based on autocorrelograms.
