  • Fast Local Histogram Specification

    Publication Year: 2014, Page(s):1833 - 1843

    Local histogram specification (LHS) is a useful technique for image processing. However, LHS faces a critical computational challenge when it is applied to high-resolution high-precision images. The calculation of the values in the cumulative distribution function (CDF) and the mapped value for the central pixel in each sliding window is time consuming with the computational complexity O(s + L) of...

  • Mahalanobis Distance Cross-Correlation for Illumination-Invariant Stereo Matching

    A robust similarity measure called the Mahalanobis distance cross-correlation (MDCC) is proposed for illumination-invariant stereo matching, which uses a local color distribution within support windows. It is shown that the Mahalanobis distance between the color itself and the average color is preserved under affine transformation. The MDCC converts pixels within each support window into the Mahal... View full abstract»

  • Precision–Energy–Throughput Scaling of Generic Matrix Multiplication and Convolution Kernels via Linear Projections

    Publication Year: 2014, Page(s):1860 - 1873

    Generic matrix multiplication (GEMM) and convolution (CONV)/cross-correlation kernels often constitute the bulk of the compute- and memory-intensive processing within image/audio recognition and matching systems. We propose a novel method to scale the energy and processing throughput of GEMM and CONV kernels for such error-tolerant multimedia applications by adjusting the precision of computation....

    We investigate large-scale face identification in unconstrained videos with 1000 subjects. This problem is very challenging, and until now most studies have only considered the scenarios with a small number of subjects and videos captured in controlled laboratory environments. Our contributions in this paper are twofold. First, we set up a large-scale video database in an unconstrained environment... View full abstract»

    Low-dimensional structures embedded in high-dimensional data space can be extracted by spectral analysis and manifold learning. Standard approaches to manifold learning are usually based on the assumption that there is a dominant low-dimensional manifold, while other variations are considered with minor priority. We instead consider the scenario that a pair of distinct manifolds intertwined in the... View full abstract»

  • Visual Object Tracking Based on Backward Model Validation

    Appearance model updating is a challenging task in visual object tracking with occlusion and appearance variation. To avoid error accumulation in model updating, validation of updating is generally performed in tracking algorithms. These algorithms use the existing appearance model to validate incoming data. However, the existing appearance model may not be able to distinguish the valid training d... View full abstract»

  • Object Tracking With Only Background Cues

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (3271 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Background cues mainly play a supplementary or accompanying role in most previous approaches for object tracking. If object tracking is treated as a binary target/background classification problem, then the similarity with the target and the difference from the background can be considered equally informative. This leads to an interesting question: is it possible to perform object tracking using b... View full abstract»

  • Multiview Matching of Articulated Objects

    We address the problem of multiview association of articulated objects observed using possibly moving and hand-held cameras. Starting from trajectory data, we encode the temporal evolution of the objects and perform matching without making assumptions on scene geometry and with only weak assumptions on the field-of-view overlaps. After generating a viewpoint invariant representation using self-sim... View full abstract»

  • Contour Model-Based Hand-Gesture Recognition Using the Kinect Sensor

    In RGB-D sensor-based pose estimation, training data collection is often a challenging task. In this paper, we propose a new hand motion capture procedure for establishing the real gesture data set. A 14-patch hand partition scheme is designed for color-based semiautomatic labeling. This method is integrated into a vision-based hand gesture recognition framework for developing desktop applications... View full abstract»

  • Differential Coding Using Enhanced Inter-Layer Reference Picture for the Scalable Extension of H.265/HEVC Video Codec

    Differential coding methods improve coding efficiency of scalable video codecs by adding the high-frequency component present in the previously coded enhancement layer (EL) pictures to the base layer (BL) picture. This paper proposes a method to enable differential coding in a scalable codec design without affecting the core coding tools, thus allowing a practical implementation to reuse single-la...

    Downsampling video coding, whereby downsampled frames are encoded, provides improved perceptual quality in rate-constrained situations. This method shows considerable advantages over other approaches, particularly in wide-spreading high-definition video formats. This paper provides a comprehensive analysis of downsampling video coding. The study proposes a spatially scalable rate-distortion (RD) m... View full abstract»

    Currently, video-on-demand (VoD) streaming over Internet is a popular application. Because of the rapidly growing video population and user population, how to maintain high user quality of experience (QoE) with low cost is a challenging problem for Internet video streaming providers. A promising technique to potentially benefit VoD streaming system is network coding. A number of recent works studi... View full abstract»

    In this paper, a low-complexity color interpolation algorithm is proposed for the very-large-scale integration (VLSI) implementation in real-time applications. The proposed novel algorithm consists of an edge detector, an anisotropic weighting model, and a filter-based compensator. The anisotropic weighting model is designed to catch more information in horizontal than vertical directions. The fil... View full abstract»

  • Audio Matters in Visual Attention

    There is a dearth of information on how perceived auditory information guides image-viewing behavior. To investigate auditory-driven visual attention, we first generated a human eye-fixation database from a pool of 200 static images and 400 image-audio pairs viewed by 48 subjects. The eye tracking data for the image-audio pairs were captured while participants viewed images, which took place immed... View full abstract»

    In this brief we propose a multisample sparse representation (MSR)-based online dictionary-learning approach to encode images more efficiently. To minimize the reconstructed error while handling a variety of image samples, we develop a multisample sparse representation method capable of obtaining sparser coefficients combined with learning dictionaries on-the-fly. With a well-learned dictionary, w... View full abstract»
