Fast Similarity Search in the Presence of Noise, Scaling, and Translation in Time-Series Databases
tl;dr
We introduce a new model of similarity of time sequences that captures the intuitive notion that two sequences should be considered similar if they have enough non-overlapping time-ordered pairs of subsequences thar are similar. Expand

Robust Video Mosaicing through Topology Inference and Local to Global Alignment
tl;dr
A framework for robust image alignment and mosaic construction iterates among automatic topology determination, local alignment, and globally consistent parameter estimation to produce a coherent mosaic from a video sequence. Expand

A global matching framework for stereo computation
tl;dr
This paper presents a new global matching framework for stereo computation that converts stereo computation into a search problem where the goal is to find the depth map that maximizes the global match measure. Expand

Evaluation of low-level features and their combinations for complex event detection in open source videos
tl;dr
Low-level appearance as well as spatio-temporal features, appropriately quantized and aggregated into Bag-of-Words (BoW) descriptors, have been shown to be effective in many detection and recognition tasks. Expand

Bilateral Filtering-Based Optical Flow Estimation with Occlusion Detection
tl;dr
We propose a multi-cue driven adaptive bilateral filter to regularize the flow computation, which is able to achieve the smoothly varied optical flow field with highly desirable motion discontinuities. Expand
