Image classification

Image Number 5 for United States Patent #8131066.

Images are classified as photos (e.g., natural photographs) or graphics (e.g., cartoons, synthetically generated images), such that when searched (online) with a filter, an image database returns images corresponding to the filter criteria (e.g., either photos or graphics will be returned). A set of image statistics pertaining to various visual cues (e.g., color, texture, shape) are identified in classifying the images. These image statistics, combined with pre-tagged image metadata defining an image as either a graphic or a photo, may be used to train a boosting decision tree. The trained boosting decision tree may be used to classify additional images as graphics or photos based on image statistics determined for the additional images.
