Robust category-level object recognition is currently a major goal for the Computer Vision community. Intra-class and pose variations, as well as, background clutter and partial occlusions are some of the main difficulties to achieve this goal. Contextual information in the form of ob- ject co-ocurrences and spatial contraints has been successfully applied to reduce the inherent uncertainty of the visual world. Recently, Choi et al. [5] propose the use of a tree-structured graphical model to capture contextual relations among objects. Under this model there is only one possible fixed contextual relation among subsets of objects. In this work we extent Choi et al. approach by using a mixture model to consider the case that contextual relations among objects depend on scene type. Our experiments highlight the advantages of our proposal, showing that the adaptive specialization of contextual relations improves object recogni- tion and object detection performances.
