In this paper, we introduce a novel approach for semantic description of
object features based on the prototypicality effects of the Prototype Theory.
Our prototype-based description model encodes and stores the semantic meaning
of an object, while describing its features using the semantic prototype
computed by CNN-classifications models. Our method uses semantic prototypes to
create discriminative descriptor signatures that describe an object
highlighting its most distinctive features within the category. Our experiments
show that: i) our descriptor preserves the semantic information used by the
CNN-models in classification tasks; ii) our distance metric can be used as the
object's typicality score; iii) our descriptor signatures are semantically
interpretable and enables the simulation of the prototypical organization of
objects within a category.
