Object Recognition Based on Visual Grammars and Bayesian Networks / 3241
ElĂ­as Ruiz, L. Enrique Sucar

A novel proposal for object recognition based on relational grammars and Bayesian Networks is presented. Based on this grammar an object is represented as a hierarchy of features and spatial relations. This representation is transformed to a Bayesian network structure which parameters are learned from examples. Thus, recognition is based on probabilistic inference in the Bayesian network representation. Preliminary results in modeling natural objects are presented.
