A method is proposed for identifying five crowd behaviors (bottlenecks, fountainheads, lanes, arches, and blocking) in visual scenes. In the algorithm, a scene is overlaid by a grid of particles initializing a dynamical system defined by the optical flow. Time integration of the dynamical system provides particle trajectories that represent the motion in(More)
Computing descriptors for videos is a crucial task in computer vision. In this paper, we propose a global video descriptor for classification of videos. Our method, bypasses the detection of interest points, the extraction of local video descriptors and the quantization of descriptors into a code book; it represents each video sequence as a single feature(More)
Enhancing brain tumor segmentation for accurate tumor volume measurement is a challenging task due to the large variation of tumor appearance and shape, which makes it difficult to incorporate prior knowledge commonly used by other medical image segmentation tasks. In this paper, a novel idea of confidence surface is proposed to guide the segmentation of(More)
Recent years have witnessed an increased attention to studies of sex differences, partly because such differences offer important considerations for personalized medicine. While the presence of sex differences in human behaviour is well documented, our knowledge of their anatomical foundations in the brain is still relatively limited. As a natural gateway(More)
In this paper, we propose a method for detecting humans and vehicles in imagery taken from a UAV. This is a challenging problem due to a limited number of pixels on target, which makes it more difficult to distinguish objects from background clutter, and results in much larger search space. We propose a method for constraining the search based on a number(More)
In this paper, we propose a method for detecting humans in imagery taken from a UAV. This is a challenging problem due to small number of pixels on target, which makes it more difficult to distinguish people from background clutter, and results in much larger searchspace. We propose a method for human detection based on a number of geometric constraints(More)
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is receiving lots of attention nowadays mainly because it is one of the common brain disorders among children and not much information is known about the cause of this disorder. In this study, we propose to use a novel approach for automatic classification of ADHD conditioned subjects and control subjects(More)
Correlation filters for visual object tracking in visible imagery has been well-studied. Most of the correlation-filterbased methods use either raw image intensities or feature maps of gradient orientations or color channels. However, well-known features designed for visible spectrum may not be ideal for infrared object tracking, since infrared and visible(More)
This paper addresses the problem of maritime vessel identification by exploiting the state-of-the-art techniques of distance metric learning and deep convolutional neural networks since vessels are the key constituents of marine surveillance. In order to increase the performance of visual vessel identification, we propose a joint learning framework which(More)
