Speeding-up Graphical Model Optimization via a Coarse-to-fine Cascade of Pruning Classifiers

09/15/2014 ∙ by B. Conejo, et al. ∙ 0

We propose a general and versatile framework that significantly speeds-up graphical model optimization while maintaining an excellent solution accuracy. The proposed approach relies on a multi-scale pruning scheme that is able to progressively reduce the solution space by use of a novel strategy based on a coarse-to-fine cascade of learnt classifiers. We thoroughly experiment with classic computer vision related MRF problems, where our framework constantly yields a significant time speed-up (with respect to the most efficient inference methods) and obtains a more accurate solution than directly optimizing the MRF.
