An Image Recognition Method Based on Scene Semantics

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 217)


Aimed at the image recognition between scenes and objects, we propose a sort of image recognition method based on scene semantics (IRMSS). In IRMSS, the landmark objects of various scenes are collected to form a feature database named Symbolic Objects Database and marked firstly; secondly, the remaining objects in the image could be identified one by one according to scene semantics known from the step forward; and thirdly, the scene of the image would be repeated validated and continuous concreted by using recognition results of each time to form a feedback system for the recognition of image semantics. At final, the simulation experiments showed that IRMSS could sharply promote the accuracy and efficiency of image semantic recognition in the case of strong semantic scene.
