Increase in the use of digital images has shown the need for modeling and querying the semantic content, which is usually defined using the objects in the images. In this paper, a Genetic Algorithm (GA) based object classification mechanism is developed for extracting the content of images. Objects are defined by using the Best Representative and Discriminative Feature (BRDF) model, where features are MPEG-7 descriptors. The classifier improves itself in time, with the genetic operations of GA.
