On-line learning is becoming essential for many real-world vision tasks. The amount of available training data is increasing rapidly, which makes off-line training times much too long. On-line algorithms process one example at a time, thus, such methods are more adequate for large data sets. In addition there are applications where on-line training is the only option (data is generated in an on-line manner). The performance of most off-line classification methods is bounded with the amount of the priori information at the beginning since they assume the learner plays no role in obtaining information about the unknown classes. However, on-line algorithms can adapt to new information. In conventional methods, the training samples are simply drawn independently from some probability distribution. On the other hand, recent on-line works show more powerful oracles. Off-line methods imply that training and testing are separate steps. Training the classifier on-line as new data arrives enables combining these stages.
