—Demand for bus surveillance is growing due to the increased threats of terrorist attack, vandalism and litigation. However, CCTV systems are traditionally used in forensic mode, precluding an in-time reaction to an event. In this paper, we introduce a real-time event composition framework which can support the instant recognition of emergent events based(More)
CCTV and sensor based surveillance systems are part of our daily lives now in this modern society due to the advances in telecommunications technology and the demand for better security. The analysis of sensor data produces semantic rich events describing activities and behaviours of objects being monitored. Three issues usually are associated with events(More)
a r t i c l e i n f o a b s t r a c t Belief revision performs belief change on an agent's beliefs when new evidence (either of the form of a propositional formula or of the form of a total pre-order on a set of interpretations) is received. Jeffrey's rule is commonly used for revising probabilistic epistemic states when new information is probabilistically(More)
The success postulate in belief revision ensures that new evidence (input) is always trusted. However, admitting uncertain input has been questioned by many researchers. Darwiche and Pearl argued that strengths of evidence should be introduced to determine the outcome of belief change, and provided a preliminary definition towards this thought. In this(More)
Belief revision characterizes the process of revising an agent's beliefs when receiving new evidence. In the field of artificial intelligence, revision strategies have been extensively studied in the context of logic-based formalisms and probability kinematics. However, so far there is not much literature on this topic in evidence theory. In contrast,(More)
Situation calculus has been applied widely in artificial intelligence to model and reason about actions and changes in dynamic systems. Since actions carried out by agents will cause constant changes of the agents' beliefs, how to manage these changes is a very important issue. Shapiro et al. [22] is one of the studies that considered this issue. However,(More)
Demand for intelligent surveillance in public transport systems is growing due to the increased threats of terrorist attack, vandalism and litigation. The aim of intelligent surveillance is in-time reaction to information received from various monitoring devices, especially CCTV systems. However, video analytic algorithms can only provide static assertions,(More)
