Abstract

In this paper, we propose an image classification system employing multiple modules. The proposed system hierarchically categorizes given sports images into one of the predefined sports classes, eight in this experiment. The image first categorized into one of the two classes in the global module. The corresponding local module is selected accordingly, and then used in the local classification step. By employing multiple modules, the system can specialize each local module properly for the given class feature. The simulation results show that the proposed system successfully classifies images with the correct rate of over 70%.
