  • Covariances in Computer Vision and Machine Learning

    <p>Covariance matrices play important roles in many areas of mathematics, statistics, and machine learning, as well as their applications. In computer vision and image processing, they give rise to a powerful data representation, namely the covariance descriptor, with numerous practical applications.</p> <p>In this book, we begin by presenting an overview of the {\it finite- dimensional covariance matrix} representation approach of images, along with its statistical interpretation. In particular, we discuss the various distances and divergences that arise from the intrinsic geometrical structures of the set of Symmetric Positive Definite (SPD) matrices, namely Riemannian manifold and convex cone structures. Computationally, we focus on kernel methods on covariance matrices, especially using the Log-Euclidean distance.</p> <p>We then show some of the latest developments in the generalization of the finite-dimensional covariance matrix representation to the {\it infinite-dimensional covariance operator} representation via positive definite kernels. We present the generalization of the affine-invariant Riemannian metric and the Log-Hilbert-Schmidt metric, which generalizes the Log Euclidean distance. Computationally, we focus on kernel methods on covariance operators, especially using the Log-Hilbert-Schmidt distance. Specifically, we present a two-layer kernel machine, using the Log-Hilbert- Schmidt distance and its finite-dimensional approximation, which reduces the computational complexity of the exact formulation while largely preserving its capability. Theoretical analysis shows that, mathematically, the approximate Log-Hilbert-Schmidt distance should be preferred over the approximate Log- Hilbert-Schmidt inner product and, computationally, it should be preferred over the approximate affine-invariant Riemannian distance.</p> <p>Numerical experiments on image classification demonstrate significant improvements of the infinite-dimensional formulation over the finite-dimensional counterpart. Given the numerous applications of covariance matrices in many areas of mathematics, statistics, and machine learning, just to name a few, we expect that the infinite-dimensional covariance operator formulation presented here will have many more applications beyond those in computer vision.</p>

  • Analysis of Contour Motions

    A reliable motion estimation algorithm must function under a wide range of conditions. One regime, which we consider here, is the case of moving objects with contours but no visible texture. Tracking distinctive features such as corners can disambiguate the motion of contours, but spurious features such as T-junctions can be badly misleading. It is difficult to determine the reliability of motion from local measurements, since a full rank covariance matrix can result from both real and spurious features. We propose a novel approach that avoids these points altogether, and derives global motion estimates by utilizing information from three levels of contour analysis: edgelets, boundary fragments and contours. Boundary fragment are chains of orientated edgelets, for which we derive motion estimates from local evidence. The uncertainties of the local estimates are disambiguated after the boundary fragments are properly grouped into contours. The grouping is done by constructing a graphical model and marginalizing it using importance sampling. We propose two equivalent representations in this graphical model, reversible switch variables attached to the ends of fragments and fragment chains, to capture both local and global statistics of boundaries. Our system is successfully applied to both synthetic and real video sequences containing high-contrast boundaries and textureless regions. The system produces good motion estimates along with properly grouped and completed contours.

  • Differential Entropic Clustering of Multivariate Gaussians

    Gaussian data is pervasive and many learning algorithms (e.g., k-means) model their inputs as a single sample drawn from a multivariate Gaussian. However, in many real-life settings, each input object is best described by multiple samples drawn from a multivariate Gaussian. Such data can arise, for example, in a movie review database where each movie is rated by several users, or in time-series domains such as sensor networks. Here, each input can be naturally described by both a mean vector and covariance matrix which parameterize the Gaussian distribution. In this paper, we consider the problem of clustering such input objects, each represented as a multivariate Gaussian. We formulate the problem using an information theoretic approach and draw several interesting theoretical connections to Bregman divergences and also Bregman matrix divergences. We evaluate our method across several domains, including synthetic data, sensor network data, and a statistical debugging application.

  • A Serial Approach to Handling High-Dimensional Measurements in the Sigma-Point Kalman Filter

    Pose estimation is a critical skill in mobile robotics and is often accomplished using onboard sensors and a Kalman filter estimation technique. For systems to run online, computational efficiency of the filter design is crucial, especially when faced with limited computing resources. In this paper, we present a novel approach to serially process high-dimensional measurements in the Sigma-Point Kalman Filter (SPKF), in order to achieve a low computational cost that is linear is the measurement dimension. Although the concept of serially processing measurements has been around for quite some time in the context of the Extended Kalman Filter (EKF), few have considered this approach with the SPKF. At first glance, it may be tempting to apply the SPKF update step serially. However, we prove that without re-drawing sigma points, this ‘naive’ approach cannot guarantee the positive-definiteness of the state covariance matrix (not the case for the EKF). We then introduce a novel method for the Sigma-Point Kalman Filter to process high-dimensional, uncorrelated measurements serially that is algebraically equivalent to processing the measurements in parallel, but still achieves a computational cost linear in the measurement dimension.

  • Evaluating Multisensor Classification Performance with Bayesian Networks

    This chapter presents a new analytical approach for quantifying the long‐run performance of a multisensor, discrete‐state classification system, under the assumption of independent, asynchronous measurements, and consolidates earlier research. It addresses the problem of evaluating the classification performance of both single‐ and multisensor classification systems, where one or more sensors observe repeated measurements of a target's features/attributes and compute posterior probability estimates to aid in target identification. The chapter develops a new analytical approach for off‐line evaluation of the long‐run classification performance of a single‐ or a multisensor system for the case of independent sensor measurement. It defines a new approach to quantify the classification performance based on the global classification matrix (GCM) of a classification system. The GCM is analogous to the covariance matrix used in kinematic performance evaluation and is an off‐line measure that does not depend on the actual sensor measurements.

  • Source Separation and Reconstruction of Spatial Audio Using Spectrogram Factorization

    This chapter introduces methods for factorizing the spectrogram of multichannel audio into repetitive spectral objects and apply the introduced models to the analysis of spatial audio and modification of spatial sound through source separation. The purpose of decomposing an audio spectrogram using spectral templates is to learn the underlying structures (audio objects) from the observed data. The chapter discusses two main scenarios such as parameterization of multichannel surround sound and parameterization of microphone array signals. It explains the principles of source separation by time‐frequency filtering using separation masks constructed from the spectrogram models. The chapter introduces a spatial covariance matrix model based on the directions of arrival of sound events and spectral templates, and discusses its relationship to conventional spatial audio signal processing. Source separation using spectrogram factorization models is achieved via time‐ frequency filtering of the original observation short‐time Fourier transform (STFT) by a generalized Wiener filter obtained from the spectrogram model parameters.
