Fusion of External Context and Patterns – Learning from Video Streams

  • Ewaryst Rafajłowicz
Part of the Advances in Intelligent and Soft Computing book series (AINSC, volume 57)


A mathematical model, which extends the Bayesian problem of pattern recognition by fusion of external context variables and patterns is proposed and investigated. Then, its empirical version is discussed and a learning algorithm for an orthogonal neural net is proposed, which takes context variables into account. The proposed algorithm has a recursive form, which is well suited for learning from a stream of patterns, which arise when features are extracted from a video sequence.
