We introduce a new light-field dataset of materials, and take advantage of
the recent success of deep learning to perform material recognition on the 4D
light-field. Our dataset contains 12 material categories, each with 100 images
taken with a Lytro Illum, from which we extract about 30,000 patches in total.
To the best of our knowledge, this is the first mid-size dataset for
light-field images. Read More
