    Many applications of object recognition in the presence of pose uncertainty rely on statistical models-conditioned on pose-for observations. The image statistics of three-dimensional (3-D) objects are often assumed to belong to a family of distributions with unknown model parameters that vary with one or more continuous-valued pose parameters. Many methods for statistical model assessment, for exa... View full abstract»

  • Analysis and design of watermarking algorithms for improved resistance to compression

    We study the performance of robust digital watermarking approaches in the presence of lossy compression by introducing practical analysis methodologies. Correlation expressions between the embedded watermark and the extracted watermark are derived to determine the optimal watermarking domain to maximize data hiding rates for spread spectrum and quantization watermarking. It is determined both theo... View full abstract»

    Surviving geometric attacks in image watermarking is considered to be of great importance. In this paper, the watermark is used in an authentication context. Two solutions are being proposed for such a problem. Both geometric and invariant moments are used in the proposed techniques. An invariant watermark is designed and tested against attacks performed by StirMark using the invariant moments. On... View full abstract»

  • Wavelet tree quantization for copyright protection watermarking

    This paper proposes a wavelet-tree-based blind watermarking scheme for copyright protection. The wavelet coefficients of the host image are grouped into so-called super trees. The watermark is embedded by quantizing super trees. The trees are so quantized that they exhibit a large enough statistical difference, which will later be used for watermark extraction. Each watermark bit is embedded in pe... View full abstract»

  • Segmentation for robust tracking in the presence of severe occlusion

    Tracking an object in a sequence of images can fail due to partial occlusion or clutter. Robustness to occlusion can be increased by tracking the object as a set of "parts" such that not all of these are occluded at the same time. However, successful implementation of this idea hinges upon finding a suitable set of parts. In this paper we propose a novel segmentation, specifically designed to impr... View full abstract»

  • Spatially adaptive wavelet denoising using the minimum description length principle

    This paper presents a new spatially adaptive wavelet denoising method. Based on a doubly stochastic process model of wavelet coefficients, the method gives a new threshold, which varies spatially according to the variances of the coefficients, using the minimum description length (MDL) principle. The new threshold is not only easier to analyze since it is in a closed form, but also provides more f... View full abstract»

    Restoring an image from its convolution with an unknown blur function is a well-known ill-posed problem in image processing. Many approaches have been proposed to solve the problem and they have shown to have good performance in identifying the blur function and restoring the original image. However, in actual implementation, various problems incurred due to the large data size and long computatio... View full abstract»

  • Tone-dependent error diffusion

    We present an enhanced error diffusion halftoning algorithm for which the filter weights and the quantizer thresholds vary depending on input pixel value. The weights and thresholds are optimized based on a human visual system model. Based on an analysis of the edge behavior, a tone dependent threshold is designed to reduce edge effects and start-up delay. We also propose an error diffusion system... View full abstract»

  • Morse operators for digital planar surfaces and their application to image segmentation

    This paper introduces the concept of digital planar surfaces and corresponding Morse operators. These operators offer a novel and powerful method for construction and de-construction of such surfaces in a way that global topological control of the resulting object is always maintained. In that respect, this paper offers a complete pixel characterization tool. Image handling is a natural applicatio... View full abstract»

    A novel approach to multiresolution signal-level image fusion is presented for accurately transferring visual information from any number of input image signals, into a single fused image without loss of information or the introduction of distortion. The proposed system uses a "fuse-then-decompose" technique realized through a novel, fusion/decomposition system architecture. In particular, informa... View full abstract»

  • Adaptive two-pass rank order filter to remove impulse noise in highly corrupted images

    In this paper, we present an adaptive two-pass rank order filter to remove impulse noise in highly corrupted images. When the noise ratio is high, rank order filters, such as the median filter for example, can produce unsatisfactory results. Better results can be obtained by applying the filter twice, which we call two-pass filtering. To further improve the performance, we develop an adaptive two-... View full abstract»

    A multiscale method in surface processing is presented which carries over image processing methodology based on nonlinear diffusion equations to the fairing of noisy, textured, parametric surfaces. The aim is to smooth noisy, triangulated surfaces and accompanying noisy textures-as they are delivered by new scanning technology-while enhancing geometric and texture features. For an initial textured... View full abstract»
