2DLDA-based texture recognition in the aspect of objective image quality assessment

Krzysztof Okarma, Paweł Forczmański

Abstract


The image quality is a crucial property of each image when it comes to successful recognition. There are many methods of image quality assessment which use both objective and subjective measures. The most desirable situation is when we can evaluate the quality of an image prior to recognition.It is well known that most of classical objective image quality assessment methods, mainly based on the Mean Square Error, are poorly correlated with the way humans perceive the quality of digital images. Recently some new methods of full-reference image quality assessment have been proposed based on Singular Value Decomposition and Structural Similarity, especially useful for development of new image processing methods e.g. filtration or lossy compression.Despite the fact that full-reference metrics require the knowledge of original image to compute them their application in image recognition systems can be also useful. In the remote controlled systems where lossy compressed images are transferred using low bandwidth networks, the additional information related to the quality of transmitted image can be helpful for the estimation of recognition accuracy or even the choice of recognition method.The paper presents a problem of recognizing visual textures using two-dimensional Linear Discriminant Analysis. The image features are taken from the FFT spectrum of gray-scale image and then rendered into a feature matrix using LDA. The final part of recognition is performed using distance calculation from the centers of classes. The experiments employ standard benchmark database - Brodatz Textures.Performed investigations are focused on the influence of image quality on the recognition performance and the correlation between image quality metrics and the recognition accuracy.
