Finding Bucky Identifying unapproved logo representations James Buchen, David Mateo, Liang Zheng Gooi
Motivation • Detect altered versions of Bucky logo • Maintain UW - Madison Athletics brand • Develop method to be applied to any brand or logo
Two Step Process • Use the Viola-Jones image detector • Weak Classifier model • Requires Image training • Use SIFT, SURF, or FAST • Flagged images will be compared directly • Approve the image based on number of feature points
Viola-Jones Image Detector • Complex classifier • Uses cascading weak classifiers • Trained using positive and negative images • Feature values are sum of pixels in clear rectangles subtracted from sum of pixels within shaded rectangles Feature Types
Method • Input official Bucky logo and website screenshot • Generate Bucky variations • Collect other variations from internet • Train viola-jones image detector • Identify potential Bucky objects • Compare objects and official Bucky using SIFT • Generate output image
Other technologies we looked into • Extract cartoon from other image • Create occlusion image • SURF detector, Edge Feature (EF) • “Content Based Image Retrieval through Object Extraction and Querying”
Sift-Negative • Altered Aspect Ratio produces negative response • Obscured Bucky only has ~half the feature points matching
Sift-Positive • Almost all feature points match • Invariant to scaling
Future Improvements • Increase variety of generated images • Increase number of collected images • Tune the detector • Choose decision threshold for SIFT • Develop automatic website crawler to scan many websites for Unapproved Bucky images.
Thank you! Questions?
