In this paper we propose the Adaptive Scene Dependent Filters (ASDF) to enhance the online learning capabilities of an object recognition system in real-world scenes. The ASDF method proposed extends the idea of unsupervised segmentation to a flexible, highly dynamic image segmentation architecture. We combine unsupervised segmentation to define coherent groups of pixels with a recombination step using top-down information to determine which segments belong together to the object. We show the successful application of this approach to online learning in cluttered environments.
