Similarity Learning for Motion Estimation

Download Now Free registration required

Executive Summary

Motion estimation necessitates an appropriate choice of similarity function. Because generic similarity functions derived from simple assumptions are insufficient to model complex yet structured appearance variations in motion estimation, the authors propose to learn a discriminative similarity function to match images under varying appearances by casting image matching into a binary classification problem. They use the LogitBoost algorithm to learn the classifier based on an annotated database that exemplifies the structured appearance variations: An image pair in correspondence is positive and an image pair out of correspondence is negative.
