Live fish recognition in the open sea is a challenging multi-class classification task. We propose a novel method to recognize fish in an unrestricted natural environment recorded by underwater cameras. This method extracts 66 types of features, which are a combination of color, shape and texture properties from different parts of the fish and reduce the(More)
— In this paper we investigate the effect of image resolution on the error rates of a face verification system. We do not restrict ourselves to the face recognition algorithm only, but we also consider the face registration. In our face recognition system, the face registration is done by finding landmarks in a face image and subsequent alignment based on(More)
The study of fish populations in their own natural environment is a task that has usually been tackled in invasive ways which inevitably influenced the behavior of the fish under observation. Recent projects involving the installation of permanent underwater cameras (e.g. the Fish4Knowledge (F4K) project, for the observation of Taiwan’s coral reefs) allow(More)
As more subject-specific image datasets (medical images , birds, etc) become available, high quality labels associated with these datasets are essential for building statistical models and method evaluation. Obtaining these annotations is a time-comsuming and thus a costly business. We propose a clustering method to support this annotation task, making the(More)
We present a research tool that supports marine ecologists' research by allowing analysis of long-term and continuous fish monitoring video content. The analysis can be used for instance to discover ecological phenomena such as changes in fish abundance and species composition over time and area. Two characteristics set our system apart from traditional(More)
Figure 1: Rendering a synthetic object (dragon) into a real scene recorded with the Kinect sensor, where both the shading and shadows are based on an estimated light source position determined using only the information provided by the Kinect sensor. Goal:To realistically render objects in a scene taking into account the illumination of the scene. Our(More)
A live fish recognition system is needed in application scenarios where manual annotation is too expensive, i.e. too many underwater videos. We present a novel balance-enforced optimized tree with reject option (BEOTR) for live fish recognition. It recognizes the top 15 common species of fish and detects new species in an unrestricted natural environment(More)
For most face recognition systems, proper registration of the faces to a common coordinate system is of great importance to obtain acceptable performance. Generally , for this purpose, landmarks are selected that can be located reliably, like the centres of the eyes, the tip of the nose and the centre or corners of the mouth. Many of the published results(More)
Understanding and analyzing fish behaviour is a fundamental task for biologists that study marine ecosystems because the changes in animal behaviour reflect environmental conditions such as pollution and climate change. To support investigators in addressing these complex questions, underwater cameras have been recently used. They can continuously monitor(More)
