We propose a novel methodology for re-identification, based on Pictorial Structures (PS). Whenever face or other biometric information is missing, humans recognize an individual by selectively focusing on the body parts, looking for part-to-part correspondences. We want to take inspiration from this strategy in a re-identification context, using PS to(More)
FK506 binding protein (FKBP) is a cytosolic receptor for the immunosuppressive drug FK-506. The common isoform, FKBP12, was found to be associated with the calcium release channel (ryanodine receptor 1) of different species of vertebrate skeletal muscle, whereas 12.6, a novel FKBP isoform was found to be associated with canine cardiac ryanodine receptor(More)
Re-identification of pedestrians in video-surveillance settings can be effectively approached by treating each human figure as an articulated body, whose pose is estimated through the framework of Pictorial Structures (PS). In this way, we can focus selectively on similarities between the appearance of body parts to recognize a previously seen individual.(More)
This paper proposes a new approach to model-based clustering under prior knowledge. The proposed formulation can be interpreted from two different angles: as penalized logistic regression, where the class labels are only indirectly observed (via the probability density of each class); as finite mixture learning under a grouping prior. To estimate the(More)
Members of the dynamin superfamily are implicated in vesicle trafficking. Using human glycogen synthase kinase 3 beta (Gsk-3 beta) as bait in the yeast two-hybrid system, we identified a novel human dynamin-like protein IV (HdynIV). When the full-length cDNA of HdynIV was sequenced, it showed that HdynIV's carboxyl terminal lacks a proline-rich domain that(More)
We present a generative model to perform cosegmentation on an arbitrary number of images, where cosegmentation has been defined as the task of segmenting simultaneously the common parts between a pair of images. We build upon a previous work that introduced a new approach to model-based clustering under prior knowledge, and exploit its simplicity and(More)
Lymphotactin (Ltn) is the sole member of C chemokines which attracts T cells and NK cells specially. Ltn gene was transferred in vivo to improve the antitumor efficacy of cytosine deaminase (CD) gene therapy. Upregulation of CD80 and CD54 on murine CT26 colon carcinoma cells was observed after combined transfection with adenovirus encoding CD (AdCD) and(More)
A video surveillance sequence generally contains a lot of scattered information regarding several objects in cluttered scenes. Especially in case of use of digital hand-held cameras, the overall quality is very low due to the unstable motion and the low resolution, even if multiple shots of the desired target are available. To overcome these limitations,(More)
Nonverbal behavior plays an important role in any human–human interaction. Teaching—an inherently social activity—is not an exception. So far, the effect of nonverbal behavioral cues accompanying lecture delivery was investigated in the case of traditional ex-cathedra lectures, where students and teachers are co-located. However, it is becoming increasingly(More)
