Abstract

We propose a method to improve the prediction performance of existing color-difference formulas with additional visual data. The formula is treated as the mean function of a Gaussian process, which is trained with experimentally determined color-discrimination data. Color-difference predictions are calculated using Gaussian process regression (GPR) considering the uncertainty of the visual data. The prediction accuracy of the CIE94 formula is significantly improved with the GPR approach for the Leeds and the Witt datasets. By upgrading CIE94 with GPR we achieve a significantly lower STRESS value of 26.58 compared with that for CIEDE2000 (27.49) on a combined dataset. The method could serve to improve the prediction performance of existing color-difference equations around particular color centers without changing the equations themselves.
