The performance of many computer vision methods depends on the quality of the local features extracted from the images. For most methods the local features are extracted independently of the task and they remain constant through the whole process. To make features more dynamic and give models a choice in the features they can use, this work introduces a set of intermediate features referred as cloud features. These features take advantage of part-based models at the feature level by combining each extracted local feature with its close by local feature creating a cloud of different representations for each local features. These representations capture the local variations around the local feature. At classification time, the best possible representation is pulled out of the cloud and used in the calculations. This selection is done based on several latent variables encoded within the cloud features. The goal of this paper is to test how the cloud features can improve the feature level likelihoods. The focus of the experiments of this paper is on feature level inference and showing how replacing single features with equivalent cloud features improves the likelihoods obtained from them. The experiments of this paper are conducted on several classes of MSRCv1 dataset.
