Multi-level Texture Encoding and Representation (MuLTER) based on Deep Neural Networks

23 May 2019  ·  Yuting Hu, Zhiling Long, Ghassan AlRegib ·

In this paper, we propose a multi-level texture encoding and representation network (MuLTER) for texture-related applications. Based on a multi-level pooling architecture, the MuLTER network simultaneously leverages low- and high-level features to maintain both texture details and spatial information. Such a pooling architecture involves few extra parameters and keeps feature dimensions fixed despite of the changes of image sizes. In comparison with state-of-the-art texture descriptors, the MuLTER network yields higher recognition accuracy on typical texture datasets such as MINC-2500 and GTOS-mobile with a discriminative and compact representation. In addition, we analyze the impact of combining features from different levels, which supports our claim that the fusion of multi-level features efficiently enhances recognition performance.
