Learning of multi-class object representations for object class detection and recognition

We deal with a problem of Multi-class Object Representation and present a framework for learning a hierarchical shape vocabulary capable of representing objects in hierarchical manner using a statistically important compositional shapes. The approach takes simple oriented contour fragments and learns their frequent spatial configurations. These are recursively combined into increasingly more complex and class specific shape compositions, each exerting a high degree of shape variability
