Activity videos are widespread on the Internet but current video search is limited to text tags due to limitations in recognition systems. One of the main reasons for this limitation is the wide variety of activities users could query. Thus codifying knowledge for all queries becomes problematic. Relevance Feedback (RF) is a retrieval framework that(More)
Hyper spectral reflectance data allows for highly accurate spectral relighting under arbitrary illumination, which is invaluable to applications ranging from archiving cultural e-heritage to consumer product design. Past methods for capturing the spectral reflectance of scenes has proven successful in relighting but they all share a common assumption. All(More)
In recent years, fluorescence analysis of scenes has received attention. Fluorescence can provide additional information about scenes, and has been used in applications such as camera spectral sensitivity estimation, 3D reconstruction, and color relighting. In particular, hyperspectral images of reflective-fluorescent scenes provide a rich amount of data.(More)
Hyperspectral imaging is beneficial in a diverse range of applications from diagnostic medicine, to agriculture, to surveillance to name a few. However, hyperspectral images often suffer from degradation such as noise and low resolution. In this paper, we propose an effective model for hyperspectral image (HSI) restoration, specifically image denoising and(More)

Hyperspectral imaging is beneficial to many applications but most traditional methods do not consider fluorescent effects which are present in everyday items ranging from paper to even our food. Furthermore, everyday fluorescent items exhibit a mix of reflection and fluorescence so proper separation of these components is necessary for analyzing them. In(More)
This paper describes current work toward the design of a guide robot system. We present a method to recognize people's interest and intention from their walking trajectories in indoor environments, which enables a service robot to proactively approach people to provide services to them. We conducted observational experiments in a museum as a target test(More)
