A Machine Learning (Theory) Perspective on Computer Vision
In: History of Computer Vision, Graz, Austria(2008).
I will talk about my experience – as a machine learning person – with computer vision. When I came in touch
with computer vision (2002), modern machine learning algorithms started to be used more regularly in computer
vision, including Boosting and Support Vector Machines. I will give also a brief history of these algorithms.
I believe that the challenging topics in computer vision have not changed much since 2002. Our project
proposal from then is largely still a valid research agenda, and I will comment on some of the issues at the
intersection of computer vision and machine learning.
