SCAKD'11 - Soft Computing applications and Knowledge Discovery. Workshop co-located with the 13th International Conference on Rough Sets,Fuzzy Sets, Data Mining, and Granular Computing (RSFDGrC-2011) and the 4th International Conference on Pattern Recognition and Machine Intelligence (PReMI-2011), June 2011, Moscow, Russia
The problem of automatic image recognition based on the minimum information discrimination principle is formulated and solved. Color histograms comparison in the Kullback–Leibler information metric is proposed. It’s combined with method of directed enumeration alternatives as opposed to complete enumeration of competing hypotheses. Results of an experimental study of the Kullback-Leibler discrimination in the problem of face recognition with a large database are presented. It is shown that the proposed algorithm is characterized by increased accuracy and reliability of image recognition.
