Hierarchical methods have been widely explored for object recognition, which is a critical component of scene understanding. However, few existing works are able to model the contextual information (e.g., objects co-occurrence) explicitly within a single coherent framework for scene understanding. Towards this goal, in this paper we propose a novel three-level (superpixel level, object level and scene level) hierarchical model to address the scene categorization problem. Our proposed model is a coherent probabilistic graphical model that captures the object co-occurrence information for scene understanding with a probabilistic chain structure. The efficacy of the proposed model is demonstrated by conducting experiments on the LabelMe dataset.
