Local Binary Patterns

The Local Binary Patterns (LBP) cascade is a type of cascade classifier that is used widely in computer vision. But before we go any further into understanding LBP, let us first understand what cascade classifiers in general are. Classifiers are like black boxes where we input an image and the classifier outputs a label for the input image based on some model (this is usually a model trained using a lot of training images). An example of a simple classifier is a digit classifier that we will actually implement in Chapters 5, Integrating Machine Learning with Computer Vision, and Chapter 6Image Classification Using Neural Networks. The word "cascade" means to form a chain of sorts. In the current context, it means to ...
