Abstract:
In this work we present a novel approach for learning non- homogenous textures without facing the unlearning problem. Our learning method mimics the human behavior of selective learning in the sense of fast memory renewal. We perform probabilistic boosting and structural similarity clustering for fast selective learning in a large knowledge domain acquired over different time steps. Applied to non- homogenous texture discrimination, our learning method is the first approach that deals with the unlearning problem applied to the task of drusen segmentation in retinal imagery, which itself is a challenging problem due to high variability of non-homogenous texture appearance. We present preliminary results.
