CAP 5415 Computer Vision Lecture 3 Periodicity Sampling Practicalities Fall 2009 Announcements PS 1 has been released Foreword We will be doing some derivations The goal is to use the derivations to help you build intuition and understanding about why things behave the way they do If you aren39t understanding something please ask questions Don39t get too stressed out if something is still a bit fuzzy you are welcome to come to office hours What are we doing Essentially we are guring out how to build the image out of these sinusoids of different frequency Each pixel in the transformed image corresponds to the amount of a sinusoid of a particular sinusoid that is needed High Frequencies Low Frequencies What are High Frequencies What if we remove the high frequencies Old Spectrum New

is called aliasing Bad high frequencies accidentally introduced by sampling Two ways to solve Take more samples Spreads out the impulse train in the Fourier Domain Make sure spectra don39t overlap Eliminate highfrequencies by blurring Practical Example of Aliasing httpwwwmichaelbachdeotmotstrobindexht ml In Images Aliasing is often called Jaggies Right Way Wrong Way Practical consequences from my own work Goal Zoom up lowresolution images Getting the blurry image To verify the method is working we generate the lowresolution image from the full resolution image Makes a big difference in the result Result from properlyantialiased image Result from improperlyantialiased image What39s going on The system is enhancing the unwanted aliasing Result from properlyantialiased image Result from improperlyantialiased image Practicalities of working with the DFT get Wait That39s doesn39t look like what I39ve been showing you A Remember periodicity What if you like lowfrequencies in the center Both MATLAB and Numerical Python provide functions called fftshift and ifftshift These shift the image so that the low frequencies are at the center Back to the image sharpening example Task Design a filter to make things look sharper How Remember highfrequencies correspond to the sharp stuff in images If we boost the high frequencies the image should look sharper As a reminder Operations 1 convolution 1 subtraction over the whole image As an equation Zgtkf2Z Zgtkf In terms of DFT This filter boosts the highfrequencies in the image Original Filtered Lecture 11 Meanshift and Normalized Cuts Segmentation CAP 5415 Fall 2009 MeanShift Like EM this algorithm is built on probabilistic intuitions To understand EM we had to understand mixture models To understand meanshift we need to understand kernel density estimation Take Pattern Recognition Basics of Kernel Density Estimation Let s say you have a bunch of points drawn from some distribution What s the distribution that generated these points Using a Parametric Model Could fit a parametric model like a Gaussian Why Can express distribution with a few number of parameters like mean and variance Why not Limited in flexibility NonParametric Methods We ll focus on kerneldensity estimates Basic Idea Use the data to define the distribution Intuition If I were to draw more samples from the same probability distribution then those points would probably be close to the points that l have already drawn Build distribution by putting a little mass of probability around each datapoint Example a 2000 Samplm b 20000 Samples Figure 2 2 Kernel density estimates of the density function shown in Figure Lilla Figure 5 shows the estimate amid with a relatively small number of samples It is uneven and does not approximate the true density well b Nith more samples the estimate of the density improves signi cantly From Tappen Thesis Formally A I i39j l P I fix a E39er Xi Kernel Most Common Kernel Gaussian or Normal Kernel Another way to think about it Make an image put 1or more wherever you have a sample Convolve with a Gaussian 11L 5525 What is MeanShift The density will have peaks also called modes lfwe started at point and did gradientascent we would end up at one of the modes Cluster based on which mode each point belongs to Gradient Ascent Actually no A set of iterative steps can be taken that will monotonically converge to a mode No worries about step sizes This is an adaptive gradient ascent Xixl 2 7i Zlilxisl l ZiilgOthX39H gt Yj1 y J Results 0 Oogo Results a Normalized Cuts Clustering

response into a probability gt We will use the logistic function to transform the response into a probability of the correct classification gt We will assume that each point will be labeled with a label l l can take values 1 or 1 1 Pll 1le 1 eXpax by 0 Finding the line parameters gt Now for any set of line constants we can find out the probability assigned to the correct label of each item in the training set N N 1 11 Pllilxil H 1 l exp7liami l by 0 i1 gt We39ve inserted li into the exponent because if li 71 1 Pl 71x l l l 1expambyc gt We multiply the probabilities because we believe the points are drawn independently gt Note that for each item this number tells us how much the model defined by that particular line believes that the ground truth right answer is the actual right answer Finding the line N N 1 gPllilXil i1 1 expkmmi byi 6 gt This is also called the likelihood of the data gt Ideally this likelihood should be as close to 1 as possible gt We can find the parameters of the line by looking for the line parameters that maximize this likelihood gt In other words find the set of line parameters that make the right answers have as high a probability as possible Finding the line N N 1 P l X g l ll ll 1 expiliam by 0 gt Before going on we are going to do a quick math trick gt Because the log natural logarithm or In function is monotonically increasing ie it is always increasing the parameters that maximize the above equation will also maximize N N 10g Pllilxilgt Z 710g1 expiliami by l i1 i1 Finding the line N N 10g Emilm Z 71091 exp7liami byi c i1 i1 V Similarly we can multiply this equation by 71 to change from a maximization problem to a minimization problem V Leading to a function that we will call a loss function or cost function and can be denoted as L N L 2 log 1 expiliami l byi l i1 gt Our goal is to find the line parameters that minimize L Minimizing L gt We can minimize L by using its gradient VL 8L QLJ gt The gradient can be viewed as a vector that points in the direction of steepest ascent gt So the negative gradient points in the direction of steepest descent An algorithm for minimizing L gt This leads to a simple algorithm for optimizing the line parameters gt We39ll create a vector a p b C gt The steps are 1 Initialize p to some value po 2 Repeat these steps 21 Calculate VL using the current value of p The value of the gradient depends on p 22 P H P nVL gt We go in the direction of the negative gadient because that this the direction of steepest descent More on Loss Functions gt Let39s look at the loss function that we are minimizing Lm log1 e7 lacuna gt If the label is 1 then we are encouraging our linear classifier to return a positive value gt Loss grows approximately linearly as it gets more and more negative The Log Loss Lm log1 i e gt This can be thought of as a modification of the zero one oss gt The 0 1 loss says I only care ifl make a mistake The Exponential Loss gt This is an upper bound on the 0 1 loss Boosting Approach to Finding Classification Parameters gt In the logistic regression approach discussed in the previous lecture we gathered all of our features then optimized the weights gt What if we had millions of features We couldn39t load those into memory and optimize using gradient descent gt What if we added features greedily We could then consider tons of features gt This often called boosting Describing This Mathematically gt To begin with we will minimize the exponential loss gt We will also define a new term Nf W503 Za jlid j1 gt is the classifier The predicted label of any sample is signFf gt Each is a feature Each aj is a weight gt In the boosting algorithm we will build up one feature at a time Adding Features gt Let39s assume that we have defined forj features and have chosen gtj1 Nf N562 Z ai jlt gt j1 gt Now we need to choose 1H1 gt We will minimize the exponential loss for N training examples with respect to Lg1 N Laj1 Zexp JARED a1l jllt gtigt i1 Finding the parameter N LlaHl 2 exp lilFlfi aj1 jllfilll il gt We need to find Lg1 gt We could use gradient descent or we could do a Newton step gt In a Newton step we will use a Taylor series to approximate

Boosting gt This is called the GentleBoost algorithm gt We have to choose gtj1 Usually choose that greedin by searching over a bunch of different features that have been thresholded Lecture 15 Basic
