**Max-Margin Additive Classifiers for Detection**

Subhransu Maji & Alexander Berg University of California at Berkeley Columbia University ICCV 2009, Kyoto, Japan Thankyou. Good afternoon everybody. I am going to present ways to train additive classifiers efficiently . This work is a part of an ongoing collaboration with alex berg.

**Accuracy vs. Evaluation Time for SVM Classifiers**

Non-linear Kernel Evaluation time Linear Kernel For any classification task the two main things we care about are accuracy and evaluation time. Especially for object detection where one evalutaes a classifier on thousands of windows Per image – the evalutation time becomes very important. In the past linear SVMs though relatively less accurate were preferred over kernel SVMs for real-time applications. Accuracy

**Accuracy vs. Evaluation Time for SVM Classifiers**

Non-linear Kernel Additive Kernel Evaluation time Our CVPR 08 Linear Kernel We identified a subset of non-linear kernels, called additive kernels that are used in many of the current object recognition tasks. These kernels have the special form that they decompose as a sum of Kernels over individual dimensions. Accuracy

Additive Kernel Non-linear Kernel Evaluation time Our CVPR 08 Linear Kernel Additive Kernel And showed that they can be evaulated efficiently. This makes it possible for one to use more accurate classifiers with relatively no loss in speed. In fact more than half of this Year’s submissions to the PACCAL VOC object detection challenge use variants of additive kernels. Accuracy Made it possible to use SVMs with additive kernels for detection.

**Additive Classifiers Much work already uses them!**

SVMs with additive kernels are additive classifiers Histogram based kernels Histogram intersection, chi-squared kernel Pyramid Match Kernel (Grauman & Darell, ICCV’05) Spatial Pyramid Match Kernel (Lazebnik et.al., CVPR’06) …. In this talk we are going to talk about additive models in general – where the classifier decomposes into dimensions. This may seem restrictive but it’s a useful class of classifiers which iis strictly more general than linear classifiers. In fact if the underlying kernel for the SVM is additive then the classifier is also additive

15
Summary Additive classifiers are widely used and can provide better accuracy than linear Our CVPR 08: SVMs with additive kernels are additive classifiers and can be evaluated in O(#dim) -- same as linear. This work: additive classifiers can be trained directly as efficiently (up to a small constant) as the best approaches for training linear classifiers.

**Support Vector Machines**

Embedded Space Input Space Kernel Function Inner Product in the embedded space Can learn non-linear boundaries in input space Classification Function Kernel Trick The idea of support vector machines is to find a separating hyperplane on the data into a high dimension space using a Kernel. The final classifier is ofcouse a line in a very high dimensional space but can be expressed using only the Kernel function using the so called kernel trick. If the embedded space is low dimensional then one can take advantage of the very fast linear SVM training algorithms which scale linearly with training Data as opposed to the quadratic growth for the kernel SVM.

17
**Embeddings… These embeddings can be high dimensional (even infinite)**

Our approach is based on embeddings that approximate kernels. We’d like this to be as accurate as possible We are going to use fast linear classifier training algorithms on the so sparseness is important. Unfortunately these embeddings are often high dimensional Our approach can be seen as finding embeddings that are both sparse and accurate so that we can use the very best of the linear SVM training algorithms for training The classifier. In fact we would ideally like the number of non zero entries in the embedded features to be a small multiple of the nonn zero entries in the input features.

18
**Key Idea: Embedding an Additive Kernel**

Additive Kernels are easy to embed, just embed each dimension independently Linear Embedding for min Kernel for integers For non integers can approximate by quantizing A key idea of the paper is to realize that additive kernels are easy to embed as the final embedding is just a concatenation of the individual dimension embeddings AS as example the min kernel or the histogram intersection kernel defined as A well known embedding for min kernel for integers is the unary encoding where each number is represented in the unary Example … For non-integers one may just approximate this by quantization

**Take Home Messages Additive models are practical for large scale data**

Can be trained discriminatively: Poor man’s version : encode + Linear SVM Solver Middle man’s version : encode + Custom Solver Rich man’s version : Min Kernel SVM Embedding only Approximates kernels, leads to small loss in accuracy but up to 100x speedup in training time Everyone should use: see code on our websites Fast IKSVM from CVPR’08, Encoded SVMs, etc
