OBJECT RECOGNITION FOR AUGMENTED REALITY APPLICATIONS
Developments in the field of neural networks, deep learning, and increases in computing systems’ capacity have allowed for a significant performance boost in scene semantic information extraction algorithms and their respective mechanisms. The work presented in this paper investigates the performance of various object classification- recognition frameworks and proposes a novel framework, which incorporates Super-Resolution as a preprocessing method, along with YOLO/Retina as the deep neural network component. The resulting scene analysis framework was fine-tuned and benchmarked using the COCO dataset, with the results being encouraging. The presented framework can potentially be utilized, not only in still image recognition scenarios but also in video processing.
