– Commonly, surveillance operators are today monitoring a large number of CCTV screens, trying to solve the complex cognitive tasks of analyzing crowd behavior and detecting threats and other abnormal behavior. Information overload is a rule rather than an exception. Moreover, CCTV footage lacks important indicators revealing certain threats, and can also(More)
– We propose a two-stage method for detection of abnormal behaviours, such as aggression and fights in urban environment, which is applicable to operator support in surveillance applications. The proposed method is based on fusion of evidence from audio and optical sensors. In the first stage, a number of modality-specific detectors perform recognition of(More)
We present a method for controlling a dynamical system using real-time fMRI. The objective for the subject in the MR scanner is to balance an inverted pendulum by activating the left or right hand or resting. The brain activity is classified each second by a neural network and the classification is sent to a pendulum simulator to change the force applied to(More)
This paper introduces a new method for automatic quantification of subcutaneous, visceral and non-visceral internal fat from MR-images acquired using the two point Dixon technique in the abdominal region. The method includes (1) a three dimensional phase unwrapping to provide water and fat images, (2) an image intensity inhomogeneity correction, and (3) a(More)
This paper presents a novel method for phase unwrapping for phase sensitive reconstruction in MR imaging. The unwrapped phase is obtained by integrating the phase gradient by solving a Poisson equation. An efficient solver, which has been made publicly available, is used to solve the equation. The proposed method is demonstrated on a fat quantification MRI(More)
Canonical correlation analysis (CCA) has previously been shown to work well for detecting neural activity in fMRI data. The reason is that CCA enables simultaneous temporal modeling and adaptive spatial filtering of the data. This article introduces a novel method for adaptive anisotropic filtering using the CCA framework and compares it to a previously(More)
— Despite the enormous complexity of the human mind, fMRI techniques are able to partially observe the state of a brain in action. In this paper we describe an experimental setup for real-time fMRI in a bio-feedback loop. One of the main challenges in the project is to reach a detection speed, accuracy and spatial resolution necessary to attain sufficient(More)
The inverse gradient problem, finding a scalar field f with a gradient near a given vector field g on some bounded and connected domain Ω ∈ R n , can be solved by means of a Poisson equation with inhomogeneous Neumann boundary conditions. We present an elementary derivation of this partial differential equation and an efficient multigrid-based method to(More)
