Evolutionary Synthesis of Pattern Recognition Systems (Monographs in Computer Science)by Bir Bhanu
Synopses & Reviews
Designing object detection and recognition systems that work in the real world is a challenging task due to various factors including the high complexity of the systems, the dynamically changing environment of the real world and factors such as occlusion, clutter, articulation, and various noise contributions that make the extraction of reliable features quite difficult. Evolutionary Synthesis of Pattern Recognition Systems presents novel effective approaches based on evolutionary computational techniques, such as genetic programming (GP), linear genetic programming (LGP), coevolutionary genetic programming (CGP) and genetic algorithms (GA) to automate the synthesis and analysis of object detection and recognition systems. The book's concepts, principles, and methodologies will enable readers to automatically build robust and flexible systems--in a systematic manner--that can provide human-competitive performance and reduce the cost of designing and maintaining these systems. Its content covers all key aspects of object recognition: object detection, feature selection, feature discovery, object recognition, domain knowledge. Basic knowledge of programming and data structures, and some calculus, is presupposed. Topics and Features: *Presents integrated coverage of object detection/recognition systems *Describes how new system features can be generated "on the fly," and how systems can be made flexible and applied to a variety of objects and images *Demonstrates how object detection and recognition systems can be automatically designed and maintained in a relatively inexpensive way *Explains automatic synthesis and creation of programs (which saves valuable human and economic resources) *Focuses on results using real-world imagery, thereby concretizing the book's novel ideas This accessible monograph provides the computational foundation for evolutionary synthesis involving pattern recognition and is an ideal overview of the latest concepts and technologies. Computer scientists, researchers, and electrical and computer engineers will find the book a comprehensive resource, and it can serve equally well as a text/reference for advanced students and professional self-study.
Integrates computer vision, pattern recognition, and AI. Presents original research that will benefit researchers and professionals in computer vision, pattern recognition, target recognition, machine learning, evolutionary learning, image processing, knowledge discovery and data mining, cybernetics, robotics, automation and psychology
Evolutionary computation is becoming increasingly important for computer vision and pattern recognition and provides a systematic way of synthesis and analysis of object detection and recognition systems. Incorporating "learning" into recognition systems will enable these systems to automatically generate new features on the fly and cleverly select a good subset of features according to the type of objects and images to which they are applied.This unique monograph investigates evolutionary computational techniques---such as genetic programming, linear genetic programming, coevolutionary genetic programming and genetic algorithms---to automate the synthesis and analysis of object detection and recognition systems. The book achieves four aims: *Shows the efficacy of genetic programming and coevolutionary genetic programming in synthesizing effective composite operators and composite features from domain-independent primitive image processing operations and primitive features (both elementary and complex) for object detection and recognition. *Integrates smart crossover, smart mutation and a new fitness function based on minimum description length (MDL) principle in a design to improve genetic programming's efficiency*Proposes a new MDL-based fitness function to improve the genetic algorithms performance on feature selection for object detection and recognition.*Synthesizes recognition systems by using adaptive coevolutionary linear genetic programming (LGP) in conjunction with general computer vision and image processing operatorsThe purpose of incorporating learning into the system design is to avoid the time-consuming process of feature generation and selection and to reduce the cost of building object detection and recognition systems.Researchers, professionals, engineers, and students working in computer vision, pattern recognition, target recognition, machine learning, evolutionary learning, image processing, knowledge discovery and data mining, cybernetics, robotics, automation and psychology will find this well-developed and organized volume an invaluable resource.
