I would like a meaningful and concise explanation for what it means exactly, when someone says, "We built a statistical model of all our images".
I overheard this, (and keep overhearing that phrase), but I am not sure how/what that entails exactly.
The problem set here is as follows. From a UAV, video imagery of corn fields is collected en-masse. The problem is to be able to tell when a pest (usually a small-medium sized rodent/mammal) is moving. Usually they just took the difference between consecutive images. However in this case, many false alarms happened because leaves might sway in the wind, small changes occur that are not related to the rodent moving, etc. So to this end, they said "Instead of the difference between frames method, we instead build a robust statistical model of the images we have". So what does that mean exactly?
This is the context. Thank you.
