This paper proposes a simple “prior-free” method for solving the non-rigid structure-from-motion (NRSfM) factorization problem. Other than using the fundamental low-order linear combination model assumption, our method does not assume any extra prior knowledge either about the non-rigid structure or about the camera motions. Yet, it works effectively and(More)
The Visual Object Tracking challenge 2015, VOT2015, aims at comparing short-term single-object visual trackers that do not apply pre-learned models of object appearance. Results of 62 trackers are presented. The number of tested trackers makes VOT 2015 the largest benchmark on shortterm tracking to date. For each participating tracker, a short description(More)
This paper is conceived as a tutorial on rotation averaging, summarizing the research that has been carried out in this area; it discusses methods for single-view and multiple-view rotation averaging, as well as providing proofs of convergence and convexity in many cases. However, at the same time it contains many new results, which were developed to fill(More)
Symmetric Positive Definite (SPD) matrices have become popular to encode image information. Accounting for the geometry of the Riemannian manifold of SPD matrices has proven key to the success of many algorithms. However, most existing methods only approximate the true shape of the manifold locally by its tangent plane. In this paper, inspired by kernel(More)
Registration is a fundamental task in computer vision. The Iterative Closest Point (ICP) algorithm is one of the widely-used methods for solving the registration problem. Based on local iteration, ICP is however well-known to suffer from local minima. Its performance critically relies on the quality of initialization, and only local optimality is(More)
In this paper, we present a Neural Aggregation Network (NAN) for video face recognition. The network takes a face video or face image set of a person with variable number of face frames as its input, and produces a compact and fixeddimension visual representation of that person. The whole network is composed of two modules. The feature embedding module is a(More)
Gait is one of well recognized biometrics that has been widely used for human identification. However, the current gait recognition might have difficulties due to viewing angle being changed. This is because the viewing angle under which the gait signature database was generated may not be the same as the viewing angle when the probe data are obtained. This(More)
A well-known theoretical result for motion estimation using the generalized camera model is that 17 corresponding image rays can be used to solve linearly for the motion of a generalized camera. However, this paper shows that for many common configurations of the generalized camera models (e.g., multi-camera rig, catadioptric camera etc.), such a simple(More)
Gait is a well recognized biometric feature that is used to identify a human at a distance. However, in real environment, appearance changes of individuals due to viewing angle changes cause many difficulties for gait recognition. This paper re-formulates this problem as a regression problem. A novel solution is proposed to create a View Transformation(More)
