Deep structured models

Deep compositional networks

We propose a novel deep network architecture that combines the benefits of discriminative deep learning and the benefits of compositional hierarchies. As one of the benefits we emphasize the ability to automatically adjust receptive fields to either small or large receptive fields depending on the for problem at hand and the ability to visualize deep features through explicit compositional structure

Learning a hierarchy of parts

We deal with a problem of Multi-class Object Representation and present a framework for learning a hierarchical shape vocabulary capable of representing objects in hierarchical manner using a statistically important compositional shapes. The approach takes simple oriented contour fragments and learns their frequent spatial configurations. These are recursively combined into increasingly more complex and class specific shape compositions, each exerting a high degree of shape variability

Histogram of compositions

As extension to LHOP model, we have developed a shape descriptor capable of using compositional parts learnt using the LHOP model to provide a descriptor that is compatible with HOG descriptor and can be easily used as direct replacement.

ViCoS Eye

ViCoS Eye is an experimental online service that aims to demonstrate a state-of-the-art computer vision object detection and categorization algorithm developed in our laboratory. Web-service is available in a form of a web-page and in a form of an Android application.
