Semantic Texton Forests Input: Input: 1. Training: Images with pixel level ground truth classification MSRC 21 Database
Semantic Texton Forests Input: Input: 1. Training: Images with pixel level ground truth classification. 2. Testing: Images Output: Output: A classification of each pixel in the test images to an object class.
Main Mathematical Tools 1. Conditional Random Fields (CRF) 2. Textons ( Convolution with Filter Banks ) 3. K-Means 4. Joint Boost Randomized Decision Forests
Decision Rules (Split Functions) 1.Choose one or two pixels near pixel of interest 2.Calculate simple function of their values: -Difference -Sum -Absolute Difference -Or just the pixel valuere To a hreshold Motivation: very small number of computer operations. Easy to implement on GPU.
Training the tree For each node: 1.Randomly generate a few decision rules 2.Choose the one that maximally improves the ability of the tree to separate between classes. (E(I) – entropy) Stop when tree reached pre-defined depth, or when no further improvement in classification can be achieved.
Decision Forests For added strength, create several trees instead of just one. Each tree is trained using a different subset of the training data.
Classifying at test time For each pixel in the test image: Apply the segmentation forest – marking a path in each tree (yellow). Each leaf is associated with a histogram of classes. Average the histograms from all tree, achieving a vector of probabilities for this pixel belonging to each class:
Classifying at test time The probability vectors derived from the Decision Forests can be used to classify pixels to classes, by assigning to each pixel the label that is most likely. The results are very noisy
Paths on trees represent Texture The texture of an area around a pixel can be represented by a vector comprised of all the nodes in the decision forest that belong to paths traversed when applying the forest to this pixel. In the above example, this would be the vector: ( 1, 3, 6, 10, 17, …, 84, 85, 87, 91 ) This vector is called a Semantic Texton.
Example of Semantic Textons A visualization of leaf nodes from one tree (distance d = 21 pixels). Each patch is the average of all patches in the training images assigned to a particular leaf node. Features evident include color, horizontal, vertical and diagonal edges, blobs, ridges and corners.
Example of Semantic Textons
Second Randomized Decision Forest The split functions at the nodes are based on the Texture-Layout filter: Two types of Texture-Layout filters are used: 1.Count the occurrence of a certain node in the semantic textons of pixels in a rectangle. (, )
Second Randomized Decision Forest The split functions at the nodes are based on the Texture-Layout filter: Two types of Texture-Layout filters are used: 1.Count the occurrence of a certain node N in the semantic textons of pixels in a rectangle. 2.Sum the probabilities of belonging to a certain class K for all pixels in a rectangle. This is semantic context. (, )
STF - Results Overall Accuracy: 72% Though less aesthetic, these results are quantitatively almost as good as those of TextonBoost.
STF - Summary To speed up calculation, this algorithm uses Radomized Decision Forests instead of other mathemaical tools used in TextonBoost. One RDF is used to calculate texture. A second RDF is used to classifiy pixels to object classes. The results are almost as good (quantitatively) as those of TextonBoost. The algorithm is much quicker than TextonBoost.

Classification Classify each pixel to one of 31 body part classes: – Left Upper / Right Upper / Left Lower / Right Lower head – neck – Left / Right shoulder – Left Upper / Right Upper / Left Lower / Right Lower arm – Left /Right elbow – Left /Right wrist – Left /Right hand – Left Upper / Right Upper / Left Lower / Right Lower torso – Left Upper / Right Upper / Left Lower / Right Lower leg – Left /Right knee – Left /Right ankle – Left /Right foot
Randomized Decision Forests The Randomized Decision Forests are very deep (depth = 20). => A very strong ability to classify correctly on the Training Set. => A risk of over fitting. This risk is averted by using a very (very) large training set, containing examples of many poses we wish to recognize. Most of this training set is artificially generated.
Classification → body part locations Separately for each of 31 Body Part Classes: – Create Probability map – Project to 3D space – Find modes ( using mean-shift ) – The modes (with a little post processing ) are the suggested body part locations (the output of this algorithm).
