—Human identification at a distance has recently gained growing interest from computer vision researchers. Gait recognition aims essentially to address this problem by identifying people based on the way they walk. In this paper, a simple but efficient gait recognition algorithm using spatial-temporal silhouette analysis is proposed. For each image(More)
—Vision-based human identification at a distance has recently gained growing interest from computer vision researchers. This paper describes a human recognition algorithm by combining static and dynamic body biometrics. For each sequence involving a walker, temporal pose changes of the segmented moving silhouettes are represented as an associated sequence(More)
Gait recognition has recently gained significant attention from computer vision researchers. This interest is strongly motivated by the need for automated person identification systems at a distance in visual surveillance and monitoring applications. The paper proposes a simple and efficient automatic gait recognition algorithm using statistical shape(More)
We propose a five-layer hierarchical space-time model (HSTM) for representing and searching human actions in videos. From a feature point of view, both invariance and selectivity are desirable characteristics, which seem to contradict each other. To make these characteristics coexist, we introduce a coarse-to-fine search and verification scheme based on the(More)
—This paper proposes a general framework for detecting unsafe states of a system whose basic real-time parameters are captured by multiple sensors. Our approach is to learn a danger-level function that can be used to alert the users of dangerous situations in advance so that certain measures can be taken to avoid the collapse. The main challenge to this(More)
In recent years, spectral clustering method has gained attentions because of its superior performance compared to other traditional clustering algorithms such as K-means algorithm. The existing spectral clustering algorithms are all off-line algorithms, i.e., they can not incrementally update the clustering result given a small change of the data set.(More)
In recent years, the spectral clustering method has gained attentions because of its superior performance. To the best of our knowledge, the existing spectral clustering algorithms cannot incrementally update the clustering results given a small change of the data set. However, the capability of incrementally updating is essential to some applications such(More)
This paper addresses the problem of recovering 3D human pose from a single monocular image, using a discrimi-native bag-of-words approach. In previous work, the visual words are learned by unsupervised clustering algorithms. They capture the most common patterns and are good features for coarse-grain recognition tasks like object classification. But for(More)
This paper focuses on acquisition of human motion data such as joint angles and velocity for applications of virtual reality, using both articulated body model and motion model in the CONDENSATION framework. Firstly, we learn a motion model represented by Gaussian distributions, and explore motion constraints by considering the dependency of motion(More)
In this paper, we present a spectral clustering approach to explore the possibility of discovering structure from audio data. To apply the Ng-Jordan-Weiss (NJW) spectral clustering algorithm to speaker diarization, we propose some domain specific solutions to the open issues of this algorithm: choice of metric; selection of scaling parameter; estimation of(More)
