Semantic image classification by genetic algorithm using optimised fuzzy system based on Zernike moments

Signal Image and Video Processing (Impact Factor: 0.41). 05/2012; DOI: 10.1007/s11760-012-0311-7

ABSTRACT Image classification is a challenging problem of computer vision. This study reports a fuzzy system to semantic image classification. As it is a complex task, various information of digital image, including three color space components and two Zernike moments with different order, are gathered and utilized as an input of fuzzy inference system to materialize a robust rotation/lighting condition and size invariant image classifier. For better performance, all the membership functions are optimized by genetic algorithm after empirical design stage. 90.62 and 96.25 % classification rates for RGB and HSI color spaces confirm the reliability of optimized system in different image conditions given in this contribution.

    ABSTRACT: Various types of moments have been used to recognize image patterns in a number of applications. The authors evaluate a number of moments and addresses some fundamental questions, such as image representation ability, noise sensitivity, and information redundancy. Moments considered include regular moments, Legendre moments, Zernike moments, pseudo-Zernike moments, rotational moments and complex moments. Properties of these moments are examined in detail, and the interrelationships among them are discussed. Both theoretical and experimental results are presented

    ABSTRACT: While people compare images using semantic concepts, computers compare images using low-level visual features that sometimes have little to do with these semantics. To reduce the gap between the high-level semantics of visual objects and the low-level features extracted from them, in this paper we develop a framework of learning similarity (LS) using neural networks for semantic image classification, where a LS-based k-nearest neighbors (k-NNL) classifier is employed to assign a label to an unknown image according to the majority of k most similar features. Experimental results on an image database show that the k-NNL classifier outperforms the Euclidean distance-based k-NN (k-NNE) classifier and back-propagation network classifiers (BPNC).
