Adaptive Matrices and Filters for Color Texture Classification


In this paper we introduce an integrative approach towards color texture classification and recognition using a supervised learning framework. Our approach is based on Generalized Learning Vector Quantization (GLVQ), extended by an adaptive distance measure, which is defined in the Fourier domain, and adaptive filter kernels based on Gabor filters. We evaluate the proposed technique on two sets of color texture images and compare results with those other methods achieve. The features and filter kernels learned by GLVQ improve classification accuracy and they are able to generalize much better for data previously unknown to the system.
