    In an extension of the AdaBoost and transfer AdaBoost algorithms, a boosted cross-domain categorization framework works with a learned domain-adaptive dictionary pair and boosted classifiers so that both the auxiliary domain data representations and their distributions are optimized to match the target domain. By iteratively updating weak classifiers, the categorization system allocates more credi... View full abstract»

    Automatic facial expression recognition is one of the important challenges for computer vision and machine learning. Despite the fact that many successes have been achieved in recent years, several important but unresolved problems remain. This article describes a facial expression recognition system based on the random forest technique. Contrary to the many previous methods, the proposed system u... View full abstract»

    This article proposes a novel and accurate method for matching face-sketch images with face-photo images, and vice versa. A new local fuzzy descriptor in the gradient domain, called the local gradient fuzzy pattern (LGFP), is proposed. The LGFP is a set of membership values generated using the restricted equivalence function (REF) of the intensity (gradient value) differences between a central pix... View full abstract»

    Heartbeat rate (HR) reveals a person's health. This article presents an effective system for measuring HR from facial videos acquired in a more realistic environment than current systems' testing environments. The proposed method uses a facial feature point-tracking method that combines a good feature to track method with a supervised descent method to overcome the limitations of currently availab...

    Automated estimation of the allocation of a driver's visual attention could be a critical component of future advanced driver assistance systems. In theory, vision-based tracking of the eye can provide a good estimate of gaze location. But in practice, eye tracking from video is challenging because of sunglasses, eyeglass reflections, lighting conditions, occlusions, motion blur, and other factors... View full abstract»

    In nighttime images, vehicle detection is a challenging task because of low contrast and luminosity. In this article, the authors combine a novel region-of-interest (ROI) extraction approach that fuses vehicle light detection and object proposals together with a nighttime image enhancement approach based on improved multiscale retinex to extract accurate ROIs and enhance images for accurate nightt...

    A new template-free geometric signature-based technique detects arrow annotations on biomedical images. Arrow detection is a key first step to region-of-interest (ROI) labeling and image content analysis. Images are first binarized using a fuzzy binarization tool, and candidates are selected based on the connected component principle. For each candidate, the proposed method checks geometric proper...

    The structure of a molecule is critical to determine its function in a biological context. Intelligent strategies are required to group structures with high similarity in an intuitive way. Most previous approaches focus on addressing sequence similarity and gene expression, whereas the techniques for comparative analysis of conserved structure data are underdeveloped because various secondary stru...

    On 18 November 2014, a team of four autonomous CoBot robots reached 1,000-km of overall autonomous navigation, as a result of a 1,000-km challenge that the authors had set three years earlier. The authors are frequently asked for the lessons learned, as well as the performance results. In this article, they introduce the challenge and contribute a detailed presentation of technical insights as wel... View full abstract»

    This article proposes the consumer-centered energy system (CCES), a cyber-physical-social system that integrates the power grid (physical), communications and computing (cyber), and consumer interactions (social). The authors introduce some basic features of the CCES, provide a CCES architecture for electric vehicles and smart grid, and propose a request-and-schedule energy management protocol.

    Poor air quality is a major public health concern in both developed and developing countries. Continued exposure to environments with high pollutant content is estimated to cause nearly 2.5 million premature deaths per year all over the world, including 370,000 in Europe. The worldwide concern about pollution is reflected in the development and implementation of increasingly stringent policies to ... View full abstract»
