  • A fast and robust Gabor feature based method for face recognition

    Publication Year: 2005, Page(s):95 - 98
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (235 KB)

    This paper describes a fast and robust Gabor feature based approach for face recognition. The most discriminative Gabor features are selected by the AdaBoost procedure, which are then subjected to the Generalized Discriminant Analysis (GDA) process for further class separability enhancement. Compared with the huge number of features used by typical classification algorithms using Gabor filters, ou... View full abstract»

  • Toward event recognition using dynamic trajectory analysis and prediction

    Publication Year: 2005, Page(s):131 - 134
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (244 KB)

    In this paper we propose a trajectory analysis method suited for event recognition. The method works online, in the sense that it can process the data as they are acquired by the sensors and it is dynamic, since it adapts the results to the changes in the patterns of activity. For each class of objects detected by the system, the proposed method groups trajectories with common features in clusters... View full abstract»

    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (332 KB)

    Forensic age progression for the purpose of aging a missing child is a discipline currently dominated by artistic methodologies. In order to improve on these techniques, we present a statistically rigorous approach to the aging of the human face. The technique is based upon a Principal Component Analysis and involves the definition of an aging direction through the model space, using an age-weight... View full abstract»

  • CCTV face hallucination under occlusion with motion blur

    Publication Year: 2005, Page(s):85 - 88
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (237 KB)

    In this paper, we present a novel learning-based algorithm to super-resolve multiple partially occluded CCTV low-resolution face images. By integrating hierarchical patch-wise alignment and interframe constraints into a Bayesian framework, we can probabilistically align multiple input images at different resolutions and recursively infer the high-resolution face image. We address the problem of fu... View full abstract»
