We present a novel approach to reliable and efficient recovery of part-descriptions in terms of superquadric models from range data. We show that superquadrics can directly be recovered from unsegmented data, thus avoiding any presegmentation steps (e.g., in terms of surfaces). The approach is based on the recover-andselect paradigm [10]. We present several(More)
“15 seconds of fame” is an interactive art installation which elevates the face of a randomly selected observer for 15 seconds into a “work of art”. The installation was inspired by Andy Warhol’s statement that “In the future everybody will be famous for 15 minutes” as well as by the pop-art style of his works. The critical part of the installation is(More)
In this paper we present a panoramic depth imaging system. The system is mosaic-based which means that we use a single rotating camera and assemble the captured images in a mosaic. Due to a setoff of the camera's optical center from the rotational center of the system we are able to capture the motion parallax effect which enables stereo reconstruction. The(More)
This paper proposes a technique for object recognition using superquadric built models. Superquadrics, which are three-dimensional models suitable for part-level representation of objects, are reconstructed from range images using the recover-and-select paradigm. Using interpretation trees, the presence of an object from the model database can be(More)
This article contains a proposal for an automatic human face detection method, that tries to join several theories proposed by different authors. The method is based on detection of shape features (eye pairs) and skin color. The method assumes certain circumstances and constraints, respectively. Therefore it is not applicable universally. Given the(More)
In this paper we propose a method for automatic assessment of aesthetic appeal of photographs. We identify significant parameters that distinguish high quality photography from low quality snapshots. On the basis of these parameters, we defined calculable features for automatic assessment of photography aesthetics using machine learning methods. The(More)
