2016-09-10 06:00:39 -0500 commented question LBP train_cascade number of features Yeah, I know that, but don't understand this piece of code. For example, why are winSize.width and winSize.height divided by 3? 2016-09-10 05:57:53 -0500 commented answer LBP train_cascade process of training I got the book. Thanks for recommendation. Still don't understand from which of these 1000 positives are LBP features extracted from? 2016-09-10 05:57:14 -0500 received badge ● Enthusiast 2016-09-05 17:10:54 -0500 asked a question LBP train_cascade process of training I am trying to understand what is train_cascade ( using LBP) actually doing with samples. If I have, for example, 1000 positives and 1000 negatives, it calculates LBP histogram for each, right? And what does it do with all of these histograms? From which one does it choose features to make weak learners? 2016-09-05 12:24:22 -0500 asked a question LBP train_cascade number of features When I train my classifier using opencv_traincascade by using local binary pattern (LBP), I get this written on console : Number of unique features given windowSize [50,28] : 51408  How is this number calculated? I found code on GitHub, but did not manage to understand it : void CvLBPEvaluator::generateFeatures() { int offset = winSize.width + 1; for( int x = 0; x < winSize.width; x++ ) for( int y = 0; y < winSize.height; y++ ) for( int w = 1; w <= winSize.width / 3; w++ ) for( int h = 1; h <= winSize.height / 3; h++ ) if ( (x+3*w <= winSize.width) && (y+3*h <= winSize.height) ) features.push_back( Feature(offset, x, y, w, h ) ); numFeatures = (int)features.size(); }  2016-09-05 11:42:12 -0500 received badge ● Scholar (source) 2016-09-02 06:08:42 -0500 received badge ● Supporter (source) 2016-09-01 12:18:51 -0500 asked a question Concept of Cascade Classifier I am trying to undrestand conceptually how does Cascade Classifier training works in OpenCV using LBP. I understand that AdaBoost is used for choosing weak classifiers and combining them to make a strong classifier. I also understand that LBP is used as visual descriotor of features. But the thing I could not find out is how are weak classifiers actually created from LBP? Is there any learning algorithm used, like Support vector machine? Thanks for help.
