Abstract

The goal of object level annotation is to locate and identify instances of an object category within an image. Nowadays, Most of the current object level annotation systems annotate the object according to the visual appearance in the image. Recognizing an object in an image based visual appearance yield ambiguity in object detection due to appearance confusion for example "sky" object may be annotated as "water" according to similarity in visual appearance. As a result, these systems don't recognize the objects in an image accurately due to the lack of scene context. In the task of visual object recognition, scene context can play important role in resolving the ambiguities in object detection. In order to solve the ambiguity problem, this paper presents a new technique for a context based object level annotation that considers both the semantic context and spatial context analysis to reduce ambiguous in object annotation.
