Abstract: Ambiguity in scene information, due to noisy measurements and uncertain object models, can be quantified and actively used by an autonomous agent to efficiently gather new data and improve its information about the environment. In this work an information-based utility measure is used to derive from a learned classification of shape models an efficient data collection strategy, specifically aimed at increasing classification confidence when recognizing uncertain shapes. Promising experimental results are reported.
