Novel Image Representations and Learning Tasks


Abstract Computer Vision as a eld has gone through signicant changes in the last decade.

The eld has seen tremendous success in designing learning systems with hand-crafted

features and in using representation learning to extract better features. In this dissertation

some novel approaches to representation learning and task learning are studied.

Multiple-instance learning which is generalization of supervised learning, is one

example of task learning that is discussed. In particular, a novel non-parametric k-

NN-based multiple-instance learning is proposed, which is shown to outperform other

existing approaches. This solution is applied to a diabetic retinopathy pathology

detection problem eectively.

In cases of representation learning, gen... (more)
