This paper introduces a video representation based on dense trajectories and motion boundary descriptors. Trajectories capture the local motion information of the video. A dense representation guarantees a good coverage of foreground motion as well as of the surrounding context. A state-of-the-art optical flow algorithm enables a robust and efficient(More)
Text detection and localization in natural scene images is important for content-based image analysis. This problem is challenging due to the complex background, the non-uniform illumination, the variations of text font, size and line orientation. In this paper, we present a hybrid approach to robustly detect and localize texts in natural scene images. A(More)
Online handwriting recognition is gaining renewed interest owing to the increase of pen computing applications and new pen input devices. The recognition of Chinese characters is different from western handwriting recognition and poses a special challenge. To provide an overview of the technical status and inspire future research, this paper reviews the(More)
This paper describes an online Japanese character recognition system using advanced techniques of pattern normalization and direction feature extraction. The normalization of point coordinates and the decomposition of direction elements are directly performed on online trajectory, and therefore, are computationally efficient. We compare one-dimensional and(More)
This paper proposes a novel hybrid method to robustly and accurately localize texts in natural scene images. A text region detector is designed to generate a text confidence map, based on which text components can be segmented by local binarization approach. A Conditional Random Field (CRF) model, considering the unary component property as well as binary(More)
Recently, the Institute of Automation of Chinese Academy of Sciences (CASIA) released the uncon-strained online and offline Chinese handwriting databases CASIA-OLHWDB and CASIA-HWDB, which contain isolated character samples and handwritten texts produced by 1020 writers. This paper presents our benchmarking results using state-of-the-art methods on the(More)
