Compact and discriminative visual codebooks are preferred in many visual recognition tasks. In the literature, a few researchers have taken the approach of hierarchically merging visual words of a initial large-size code-book, but implemented this idea with different merging criteria. In this work, we show that by defining different class-conditional distribution function and parameter estimation method, these merging criteria can be unified under a single probabilistic framework.
