A Comparative Study of Indian Food Image Classification Using K-Nearest-Neighbour and Support-Vector-Machines
Keywords:Food Classification, KNN (k-nearest-neighbour), SVM (Support Vector Machine), Template Matching
Food being the vital part of everyoneâ€™s lives, food detection and recognition becomes an interesting and challenging problem in computer vision and image processing. In this paper we mainly propose an automatic food detection system that detects and recognises varieties of Indian food. This paper uses a combined colour and shape features. The K-Nearest-Neighbour (KNN) and Support-Vector -Machine (SVM) classification models are used to classify the features. A comparative study on the performance of both the classification models is performed. The experimental result shows the higher efficiency of SVM classifier over KNN classifier.
