We propose a formulation of people tracking problem as a Transductive Learning (TL) problem. TL is an effective semi-supervised learning technique by which many classification problems have been recently reinterpreted as learning labels from incomplete datasets. In our proposal the joint exploitation of spectral graph theory and Riemannian manifold learning(More)
Following people in different video sources is a challenging task: variations in the type of camera, in the lighting conditions, in the scene settings (e.g. crowd or occlusions) and in the point of view must be accounted. In this paper we propose a system based only on appearance information that, disregarding temporal and spatial information, can be(More)
In this paper we propose an approach for Document Layout Analysis based on local correlation features. We identify and extract illustrations in digitized documents by learning the discriminative patterns of textual and pictorial regions. The proposal has been demonstrated to be effective on historical datasets and to outperform the state-of-the-art in(More)
In this paper we describe a system for automatically analyzing old documents and creating hyper linking between different epochs, thus opening ancient documents to young people and to make them available on the web with old and current content. We propose a supervised learning approach to segment text and illustration of digitized old documents using a(More)
Multimedia forensics is a new emerging discipline regarding the analysis and exploitation of digital data as support for investigation to extract probative elements. Among them, visual data about people and people activities, extracted from videos in an efficient way, are becoming day by day more appealing for forensics, due to the availability of large(More)
Novelty detection is a crucial task in the development of autonomous vision systems. It aims at detecting if samples do not conform with the learnt models. In this paper, we consider the problem of detecting novelty in object recognition problems in which the set of object classes are grouped to form a semantic hierarchy. We follow the idea that, within a(More)
Relevance feedback is a widely adopted approach to improve content-based information retrieval systems by keeping the user in the retrieval loop. Among the fundamental relevance feedback approaches, feature space warping has been proposed as an effective approach for bridging the gap between high-level semantics and the low-level features. Recently,(More)
