The number of training images is 490. The size of each active basis template is 100 (width) by 100 (height) pixels. Maximum number of Gabor elements in each template is 40. For Gabor wavelets we use a scale of 0.70 and 16 quantized orientations within PI (in radian). Each Gabor element is allowed to move 3 pixels and rotate 1 orientation step(s) at most.

In total the codebook consists of 30 active basis templates. For unsupervised learning, we randomly start at 1 initializations. Then 10 iterations are carried out. In the encoding step, the activated templates need to have a SUM2 score of at least 40. For local inhibition between templates, the minimum distance between two activated template is 0.40 times the size of template. Allowed template rotations: [-2, -1, 0, 1, 2]. Allowed image resolutions (relative): [0.80, 1.00, 1.20]. As a pre-processing step, the input images are resized by a factor of 150.00.As a pre-processing step, the input images are resized by a factor of 150.00.
