A graph lattice approach to maintaining dense collections of subgraphs as image features
Conferences & Talks
18 September 2011
Document classification and indexing methods depend on having informative image features. This paper shows how large families of complex features can be built out of simpler ones through construction of a graph lattice -- a hierarchy of related subgraphs linked in a lattice. A graph lattice enables efficiency gains that make it possible to effectively employ bag-of-words methods for document classification using high-dimensional feature vectors. Each feature is itself a subgraph, and a feature vector is a count of occurrences of subgraphs in the image. The graph lattice enables methods for adaptively growing a feature space of subgraphs tailored to observed document genres. We demonstrate the approach through classification of forms containing rectilinear line art.
