    One of the general objectives of visual surveillance is to recognise abnormal activities from images. Current object detection/tracking techniques cannot directly classify such activities as fighting and snatching, while they reliably recognise primitive actions, such as walking and running. We represent each target activity as ground, weighted and undirected trees, Markov logic networks (MLNs), s... View full abstract»

  • Learning human actions with an adaptive codebook

    Publication Year: 2010, Page(s):13 - 20
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (325 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Learning a compact and yet discriminative codebook for classifying human actions is a challenging problem. One difficulty lies in that the learning procedure is split into two independent phases (dimension reduction and clustering) and thus results in the loss of discriminative information which clustering requires. Besides, traditional used principal component analysis is not optimized for class ... View full abstract»

  • Incremental learning of novel activity categories from videos

    We present a methodology for learning novel human activities incrementally. In many real-world scenarios (e.g. YouTube), new videos of novel activities are provided additively, and the system must incrementally adjust its activity models rather than retraining the entire system after each addition. We introduce our incremental codebook learning algorithm for an efficient mining of important visual... View full abstract»

    Kids activity means a lot to their parents, and in the analysis of the activities, video retrieval has played an important role. In this paper, we propose an effective approach for the retrieval of the kid's activities from home videos. The video sequences are taken from our test-bed environment that is designed in the form of a smart home, and feature various types of child-adult interactions. We... View full abstract»

    Activity recognition is one of the most challenging problems in the video-based surveillance and computer-vision. In this paper we propose a novel approach to recognize human activity in which we decompose an activity into multiple stochastic processes, each corresponding to one scale of motion details. We present a hierarchical durational-state dynamic Bayesian network(HDS-DBN) to model two stoch... View full abstract»

    We produced an exhibition “Digital Public Art in HANEDA AIRPORT `AIR HARBOR' - Technology Meets Air: A Sensation of a New World” in October, 2009 at the Haneda Airport which is public space and is the biggest airport in Japan. This exhibition aims to show the new concept “Digital Public Art” which tries to evolve media art to public art. This exhibition is also an exper... View full abstract»

  • Vortex ring based display

    In this paper, we propose a new kind of mid-air projection display based on vortex ring. These days, there have been many studies and developments on mid-air displays that can display quite realistic floating holographic images in the real world. However, most of the conventional mid-air displays can only show their holographic images within a 2D plane and thus users can only enjoy very limited 3D... View full abstract»

    This paper elucidates the possibilities of interactive architectural-space. Interactive architectural-space is architectural-space that is changeable or adaptable in interaction with internal and external users and environments. This paper illuminates the point which has not been focused on and describes a methodology of making a prototype of interactive architectural-space to investigate the poin... View full abstract»

    In this research, we introduce digital technology to museum environment by providing spherical image contents. This research built two systems. First, we introduce binocular-type system providing visitors with information about exhibits such as historical backgrounds and surrounding environment when used, and then projection device that creates full-image space by scanning. According to evaluation... View full abstract»

    We present the current status of FoodLog, a multimedia Internet application that enables easy capture and archival of information regarding our daily meals. The primary purpose of FoodLog is to facilitate dietary management support with minimum manual recording of information. It analyzes image archives that belong to a user to identify images of meals. Further image analysis determines the nutrit... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a method to classify food images by updating the model of Bayesian network incrementally. We have been investigating a “food log” system which makes use of image analysis, and it can automatically detect food images and estimate the food balance (using a simple nutrition model). It also enables users to easily modify the results of the analysis when they contain e... View full abstract»

    A purpose of this research is to improve a user's balance of income and expenditure by forecasting and presenting future consumption from past purchase information. First, we recorded various purchase information by scanning a large number of receipts and applying them to OCR (Optical Character Recognition). We named this system “Receiptlog”. From data of Receiptlog, we found out cyc... View full abstract»

    The data related to our life experiences is called lifelog, which can easily be collected with mobile electronic devices in recent years. Although lifelog research has been conducted for a long time, practical applications such as a memory assistant system have not been fully developed yet. This is mainly due to the lack of methods to structurize the lifelog data efficiently. In our research, we d... View full abstract»

    The “food-log” is expected as an efficient tool to collect one's meal records. Meantime, the “medical-care via telecommunication” consult system is seen as an effective way to cover some rural areas with good medical care provided in a remote manner. The “food-log” collection can provide the nutrition condition of the client for his health-survey, thus can... View full abstract»
