Non-parametric Model for Background Subtraction
tl;dr
We present a novel non-parametric background model and a background subtraction approach that enables very sensitive detection of moving targets. Expand

Background and foreground modeling using nonparametric kernel density estimation for visual surveillance
Automatic understanding of events happening at a site is the ultimate goal for many visual surveillance systems. Higher level understanding of events requires that certain lower level computer visionExpand

SPDA-CNN: Unifying Semantic Part Detection and Abstraction for Fine-Grained Recognition
tl;dr
We propose a new CNN architecture that integrates semantic part detection and abstraction (SPDACNN) for fine-grained classification. Expand

Large-scale Classification of Fine-Art Paintings: Learning The Right Metric on The Right Feature
tl;dr
We develop a machine that is able to make aesthetic-related semantic-level judgments, such as predicting a painting's style, genre, and artist, as well as providing similarity measures optimized based on the knowledge available in the domain of art historical interpretation. Expand

tl;dr
We address the problem of segmenting foreground regions corresponding to a group of people given models of their appearance that were initialized before occlusion. Expand

Write a Classifier: Zero-Shot Learning Using Purely Textual Descriptions
tl;dr
We propose an approach for zero-shot learning of object categories where the description of unseen categories comes in the form of typical text such as an encyclopedia entry, without the need to explicitly defined attributes. Expand

Online Moving Camera Background Subtraction
tl;dr
We present a method which enables learning of pixel based models for foreground and background regions and, in addition, segments each frame in an online framework. Expand

Learning dynamics for exemplar-based gesture recognition
tl;dr
We propose a non-parametric HMM approach that uses a discrete HMM with arbitrary states (decoupled from exemplars) to capture the dynamics over a large exemplar space where a nonparametric estimation approach is used to model the exemplar distribution. Expand
