Quaternion-Michelson Descriptor for Color Image Classification
Lan Rushi; Zhou Yicong
Source PublicationIEEE Transactions on Image Processing

In this paper, we develop a simple yet powerful framework called quaternion-Michelson descriptor (QMD) to extract local features for color image classification. Unlike traditional local descriptors extracted directly from the original (raw) image space, QMD is derived from the Michelson contrast law and the quaternionic representation (QR) of color images. The Michelson contrast is a stable measurement of image contents from the viewpoint of human perception, while QR is able to handle all the color information of the image holisticly and to preserve the interactions among different color channels. In this way, QMD integrates both the merits of Michelson contrast and QR. Based on the QMD framework, we further propose two novel quaternionic Michelson contrast binary pattern descriptors from different perspectives. Experiments and comparisons on different color image classification databases demonstrate that the proposed framework and descriptors outperform several state-of-the-art methods.
