Project: Learning Similarity Measures Using Neural Network
We have proposed a hybrid neural network algorithm for learning similarity measures in the texture feature space.
It achieves the objective of maintaining the topology while reducing the dimensionality, and groups perceptually
similar patterns into the same cluster. With Learning similarity, the performance of similar pattern retrievals
The following examples show the retrieval performance before (left) and after (right) learning similarity measures.
As we can see, the retrieval results better match the human visual perception in terms of texture similarity.
Note: the left block is before learning similarity measures, and the right block is after learning similarity measures
