Machine learning solutions to visual recognition problems

tel-01343391, version 1 Masquer les détails Abstract : This thesis gives an overview of my research since my arrival in December 2005 as a postdoctoral fellow at the in the LEAR team at INRIA Rhone-Alpes. After a general introduction in Chapter 1, the contributions are presented in chapters 2–4 along three themes. In each chapter we describe the contributions, their relation to related work, and highlight two contributions with more detail. Chapter 2 is concerned with contributions related to the Fisher vector representation. We highlight an extension of the representation based on modeling dependencies among local descriptors (Cinbis et al., 2012, 2016a). The second highlight is on an approximate normalization scheme which speeds-up applications for object and action localization (Oneata et al., 2014b). In Chapter 3 we consider the contributions…
