Shape-from-focus (SFF) has widely been studied in computer vision as a passive depth recovery and 3D reconstruction method. One of the main stages in SFF is the computation of the focus level for every pixel of an image by means of a focus measure operator. In this work, a methodology to compare the performance of different focus measure operators for(More)
The limited depth-of-field of some cameras prevents them from capturing perfectly focused images when the imaged scene covers a large distance range. In order to compensate for this problem, image fusion has been exploited for combining images captured with different camera settings, thus yielding a higher quality all-in-focus image. Since most current(More)
This article proposes a new technique for Privacy Preserving Collaborative Filtering (PPCF) based on microaggregation, which provides accurate recommendations estimated from perturbed data whilst guaranteeing user k-anonymity. The experimental results presented in this article show the effectiveness of the proposed technique in protecting users’ privacy(More)
The consideration of security and privacy is a linchpin of the social acceptance of pervasive technology. This paper paves the way to the development of trustworthy pervasive video surveillance systems, by emphasizing the need to properly combine different aspects that current systems do not manage. In particular, in this paper we propose the combination of(More)
This paper proposes two alternative formulations to reduce the high computational complexity of tensor voting, a robust perceptual grouping technique used to extract salient information from noisy data. The first scheme consists of numerical approximations of the votes, which have been derived from an in-depth analysis of the plate and ball voting(More)
