Object Categorization : Computer and Human Vision Perspectives, Hardback Book

Object Categorization : Computer and Human Vision Perspectives Hardback

Edited by Sven J. Dickinson, Ales Leonardis, Bernt Schiele, Michael J. Tarr


This edited volume presents a unique multidisciplinary perspective on the problem of visual object categorization.

The result of a series of four highly successful workshops on the topic, the book gathers many of the most distinguished researchers from both computer and human vision to reflect on their experience, identify open problems, and foster a cross-disciplinary discussion with the idea that parallel problems and solutions have arisen in both domains.

Twenty-seven of these workshop speakers have contributed chapters, including fourteen from computer vision and thirteen from human vision.

Their contributions range from broad perspectives on the problem to more specific approaches, collectively providing important historical context, identifying the major challenges, and presenting recent research results.

This multidisciplinary collection is the first of its kind on the topic of object categorization, providing an outstanding context for graduate students and researchers in both computer and human vision.
