Homework Help: Classification Trees vs Neural Networks

  1. Jan 7, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Hi there,

    I was wondering if anyone out there was familiar with image classification algorithms. I have been creating histograms of pixel intensity distributions.

    For example, suppose I have 100 images of a tiger and 100 images of a lion.

    I create 100 histograms using the tiger images (that is, create bins 0-10, 10-20,...,250-260) and get 100 CDF.

    I do the same for the images of the lions.

    Then, I just take the inner products of the unknown CDF and the known CDF. The one's with the greatest inner product is the class I assign the image to.

    Does anyone have any good reading material regarding this type of problem? My method can take a long time depending on the resolution of the images.
