Model Structure

Given a particular object class model with parameters, we must decide whether or not a new image contains an instance of that class. This is accomplished by making a Bayesian decision,


R = frac{p(mbox{Object}|X,S,A)}{p(mbox{No object}|X,S,A)}

= frac{p(X,S,A|mbox{Object})p(mbox{Object})}{p(X,S,A|mbox{No object})p(mbox{No object})}

approx frac{p(X,S,A|Theta)p(mbox{Object})}{p(X,S,A|Theta_{bg})p(mbox{No object})}

where is the background model. This ratio is compared to a threshold to determine object presence/absence.

The likelihoods are factored as follows:


p(X,S,A|Theta) = sum_{h in H} p(X,S,A,h|Theta) =

sum_{h in H} underbrace{ p(A|X,S,h,Theta) }_{mbox{Appearance}} underbrace{ p(X|S,h,Theta) }_{mbox{Shape}} underbrace{ p(S|h,Theta) }_{mbox{Rel. Scale}} underbrace{ p(h|Theta) }_{mbox{Other}}

Famous quotes containing the words structure and/or model:

    In the extent and proper structure of the Union, therefore, we behold a republican remedy for the diseases most incident to republican government.
    James Madison (1751–1836)

    I had a wonderful job. I worked for a big model agency in Manhattan.... When I got on the subway to go to work, it was like traveling into another world. Oh, the shops were beautiful, we had Bergdorf’s, Bendel’s, Bonwit’s, DePinna. The women wore hats and gloves. Another world. At home, it was cooking, cleaning, taking care of the kids, going to PTA, Girl Scouts. But when I got into the office, everything was different, I was different.
    Estelle Shuster (b. c. 1923)
