Abstract

In this chapter we review some kernel methods useful for image classification and retrieval applications. Starting from the problem of constructing appropriate image representations, we describe in depth and comment on the main properties of various kernel engineering approaches that have been recently proposed in the computer vision and machine learning literature for solving a number of image classification problems. We distinguish between kernel functions applied to images as a whole and kernel functions looking at image features. We conclude by presenting some current work and discussing open issues.
