Content-Based Image Classification

by Rik Das

Content-Based Image Classification Synopsis

Content-Based Image Classification: Efficient Machine Learning Using Robust Feature Extraction Techniques is a comprehensive guide to research with invaluable image data. Social Science Research Network has revealed that 65% of people are visual learners. Research data provided by Hyerle (2000) has clearly shown 90% of information in the human brain is visual. Thus, it is no wonder that visual information processing in the brain is 60,000 times faster than text-based information (3M Corporation, 2001). Recent times have witnessed a significant surge in conversing with images due to the popularity of social networking platforms. The other reason for embracing usage of image data is the mass availability of high resolution cellphone cameras. Wide usage of image data in diversified application areas including medical science, media, sports, remote sensing and so on has spurred the need of further research in optimizing archival, maintenance and retrieval of appropriate image content to leverage data-driven decision-making. This book demonstrates several techniques of image processing to represent image data in desired format for information identification. It discusses the application of machine learning and deep learning for identifying and categorizing appropriate image data helpful in designing automated decision support systems. The book offers comprehensive coverage of the most essential topics, including: Image feature extraction with novel handcrafted techniques (traditional feature extraction) Image feature extraction with automated techniques (representation learning with CNNs) Significance of fusion-based approaches in enhancing classification accuracy MATLAB (R) codes for implementing the techniques Use of Open Access data mining tool Weka for multiple tasks The book is intended for budding researchers, technocrats, engineering students and machine learning / deep learning enthusiasts who are willing to start their computer vision journey with content-based image recognition. The readers will get a clear picture of the essentials for transforming the image data into valuable means of insight generation. Readers will learn coding tricks necessary to propose novel mechanisms and disruptive approaches. The Weka guide provided is beneficial for those who are not comfortable coding for machine learning algorithms. The Weka tool assists the learner to implement machine learning algorithms with the click of a button. Thus, this book will be a stepping stone for your machine learning journey.
