Object Recognition Inspiring HVS

Mohammadesmaeil Akbarpour, Nasser Mehrshad, Seyyed-Mohammad Razavi


Human recognize objects in complex natural images very fast within a fraction of a second. Many computational object recognition models inspired from this powerful ability of human. The Human Visual System (HVS) recognizes object in several processing layers which we know them as hierarchically model. Due to amazing complexity of HVS and the connections in visual pathway, computational modeling of HVS directly from its physiology is not possible. So it considered as a some blocks and each block modeled separately. One models inspiring of HVS is HMAX which its main problem is selecting patches in random way. As HMAX is a hierarchical model, HMAX can enhanced with enhancing each layer separately. In this paper instead of random patch extraction, Desirable Patches for HMAX (DPHMAX) will extracted.  HVS for extracting patch first selected patches with more information. For simulating this block patches with more variance will be selected. Then HVS will chose patches with more similarity in a class. For simulating this block one algorithm is used. For evaluating proposed method, Caltech 5 and Caltech101 datasets are used. Results show that the proposed method (DPMAX) provides a significant performance over HMAX and other models with the same framework.
