Ranklets are orientation selective rank features with applications to tracking, face detection, texture and medical imaging. We introduce efficient algorithms that reduce their computational complexity from
to , where is the area of the filter. Timing tests show a speedup of one order of magnitude for typical usage, which should make Ranklets attractive for real-time applications.
