Weakly Supervised Localization of Novel Objects Using Appearance Transfer

Abstract


We consider the problem of localizing unseen objects in weakly labeled image collections. Given a set of images annotated at the image level, our goal is to localize the object in each image. The novelty of our proposed work is in addition to building object appearance model from the weakly labeled data, we also make use of existing detectors for some other object classes (which we call ``familiar objects''). We propose a method for transferring the appearance models of the familiar objects to the unseen object. Our experimental results on both image and video datasets demonstrate the effectiveness of our approach.
