From the foreword by Thomas Huang:
"During the past decade, researchers in computer vision have found that probabilistic machine learning methods are extremely powerful. This book describes some of these methods. In addition to the Maximum Likelihood framework, Bayesian Networks, and Hidden Markov models are also used. Three aspects are stressed: features, similarity metric, and models. Many interesting and important new results, based on research by the authors and their collaborators, are presented.

Although this book contains many new results, it is written in a style that suits both experts and novices in computer vision."

Nicu Sebe received his PhD degree from Leiden University in 2001. Currently, he is an Assistant Professor at Leiden University in the Netherlands. His main interest is in the fields of computer vision and pattern recognition, in particular content-based retrieval and robust techniques in computer vision. He was co-editing the proceedin...
