Markov random fields for textures recognition with local invariant regions and their geometric relationships
This paper describes a new probabilistic framework for recognizing textures in images. Images are described by local affine-invariant descriptors and their spatial relationships. We introduce a statistical parametric models of the dependence between descriptors. We use Hidden Markov Models (HMM) and estimate the parameters with a recent technique based on the mean field principle. Preliminary results for texture recognition are promising and outperform existing techniques.
