Abstract

We present a fast Bayesian algorithm for category-level object detection in natural images. We modify the popular Naive Bayes Nearest Neighbour classification algorithm to make it suitable for evaluating multiple sub-regions in an image, and offer a fast, filtering-based alternative to the multi-scale sliding window approach. Our algorithm is example-based and requires no learning. Tests on standard datasets and robotic scenarios show competitive detection rates and real-time performance of our algorithm.
