Annotations Using Committee Machines Through Mirror Neurons

R.Meenakshi, P.AnandhaKumar

Full text: PDF


An image is logically divided into clusters and their texture features are given as inputs to the ARTMAP for concepts identification. Concepts are associated using bidirectional ARTMAP of mirror neurons and these associations are carried over in a parallel manner avoiding the problem encountered in hierarchical annotation that of training many components. Applying of 2/3 rule is done to the parallel annotation to bring out the annotated result. Experiments were conducted for about 500 natural scenes. Experimental results show that the new proposed approach makes better in not only concept identification but also for efficient annotation of the image. It also has given better result when executed in parallel i.e. in a committee machine system than in a hierarchical manner.
