Abstract
The aim of image understanding, which is a long standing goal of computer vision, is to develop algorithms with which computers can advance to the semantic content of images. One ability of such algorithms would be the automatic discovery of relations between different objects in large collections of images. To analyze this relatedness we present an unsupervised and a semi-supervised approach for decomposing the large intra-class variability of object categories. The relations between objects is discovered by mapping all exemplars into a single low-dimensional projection that preserves the structure that is inherent to the category. The analysis reveals subtypes and an automatic classification algorithm is presented that predicts the artistic workshop that has drawn the objects. Finally, an approach for ordering the instances of an object category is proposed that also shows transitions between object instances. Our work is based on late medieval manuscripts from the Codices Palatini germanici.
