We propose a unified appearance model accounting for traditional shallow (i.e. 3D SIFT keypoints) and deep (i.e. CNN output layers) image feature representations, encoding respectively specific, localized neuroanatomical patterns and rich global information into a single indexing and classification framework. A novel Bayesian model combines shallow and deep features based on an assumption of conditional independence and validated by experiments indexing specific family members and general group

A novel domain adaptation strategy is presented, transforming deep CNN vectors elements into binary class-informative descriptors. A GPU-based implementation of all processing is provided. State-of-the-art performance is achieved in large-scale neuroimage indexing, both in terms of computational complexity, accuracy in identifying family members and sex classification.
