Feature selection is one of the fundamental problems in pattern recognition and data mining. A popular and effective approach to feature selection is based on information theory, namely the mutual information of features and class variable. In this paper we compare eight different mutual information-based feature selection methods. Based on the analysis of(More)
In this paper, we propose some extensions of an efficient gradient-based image registration method called the inverse compositional algorithm. Specifically, these extensions include cumulative multi-image registration and incorporations of illumination change and lens distortion correction. By combining these extensions, we propose efficient cumulative(More)
In this paper we propose a new algorithm for region-based image categorization that is formulated as a multiple instance learning (MIL) problem. The proposed algorithm transforms the MIL problem into a traditional supervised learning problem, and solves it using a standard supervised learning method. The features used in the proposed algorithm are the(More)
A multiclass classification problem can be reduced to a collection of binary problems using an error-correcting coding matrix that specifies the binary partitions of the classes. The final classifier is an ensemble of base classifiers learned on binary problems and its performance is affected by two major factors: the qualities of the base classifiers and(More)
In this paper, we propose a robust approach to super-resolution static sprite generation from multiple low-resolution images. Considering both short-term and long-term motion influences, a hybrid global motion estimation technique is first presented for sprite generation. An iterative super-resolution reconstruction algorithm is then proposed for the(More)
The MPEG-4 video coding standard introduces a novel concept of sprite or mosaic that is a large image composed of pixels belonging to a video object visible throughout a video segment. The sprite captures spatio-temporal information in a very compact way and makes it possible for efficient object-based video compression. In this paper, we propose a(More)
In this paper, we formulate the feature clustering problem for vehicle detection and tracking as a general MAP problem and solve it using MCMC. The proposed approach exhibits two advantages over existing methods: general Bayesian model can handle arbitrary objective functions and MCMC guarantees global optimal solution. Our algorithm is validated on(More)
This paper proposes a joint random field (JRF) model for moving vehicle detection in video sequences. The JRF model extends the conditional random field (CRF) by introducing auxiliary latent variables to characterize the structure and evolution of visual scene. Hence detection labels (e.g. vehicle/roadway) and hidden variables (e.g. pixel intensity under(More)
