By Song-Chun Zhu, David Mumford

A Stochastic Grammar of pictures is the 1st publication to supply a foundational evaluation and viewpoint of grammatical techniques to desktop imaginative and prescient. In its quest for a stochastic and context delicate grammar of pictures, it's meant to function a unified frame-work of illustration, studying, and popularity for various item different types. It begins out via addressing the old traits within the quarter and overviewing the most ideas: resembling the and-or graph, the parse graph, the dictionary and is going directly to studying concerns, semantic gaps among symbols and pixels, dataset for studying and algorithms. The idea grammar awarded integrates 3 trendy representations within the literature: stochastic grammars for composition, Markov (or graphical) types for contexts, and sparse coding with primitives (wavelets). It additionally combines the structure-based and visual appeal dependent equipment within the imaginative and prescient literature. on the finish of the evaluation, 3 case reports are awarded to demonstrate the proposed grammar. A Stochastic Grammar of pictures is a crucial contribution to the literature on based statistical versions in machine imaginative and prescient.

Example text

The parameters are 5 filters for 7 texture regions and each pools a 1D histogram of filter responses into 13 bins. Together with the codes for the region boundaries, total coding length for the textures is 1, 628 bytes. 04 byte per pixel. It should be noted that the coding length is roughly computed here by treating the primitives as being independent. If one accounts for the dependence in the graph and applies some arithmetic compression schemes, a higher compression rate can be achieved. To summarize, we have demonstrated that image primitives can compose a planar attribute graph configuration to generate the structured part of the image.

Most of the work remained in 1D structures, although the ideas of web grammars and plex grammars were also studied. This stream was disrupted in the 1980s and suffered from the lack of an image vocabulary that is realistic enough to express real-world objects and scenes, and reliably detectable from images. This remains a challenge today, though much progress has been made recently in appearance based methods, such as PCAs, image primitives, [31], code books [17], fragments and patches [38, 77].

7 Previous Work in Image Grammars There are four streams of research on image grammars in the vision literature. The first stream is syntactic pattern recognition by K. S. Fu and his school in the late 1970s to early 1980s [22]. Fu depicted an ambitious program for scene understanding using grammars. 11. Similar image understanding systems were also studied in the 1970–1980s [33, 54] The hierarchical representation on the right is exactly the sort of parse graph that we are pursuing today. 7 Previous Work in Image Grammars 37 Fig.
