August 2008: Active Matching: a new algorithm developed with Margarita Chli for efficient probabilistic matching of sets of features in images. It combines the advantages of step-by-step active search guided by information theory with a multiple-hypothesis, mixture of Gaussians model able to cope fully with matching ambiguity. We show large reductions in the number of image processing operations required to achieve consensus matching of sets of features during camera tracking when compared with “match first, then resolve outliers” algorithms such as RANSAC and JCBB.
