In this paper we propose a novel approach to multi-action recognition that performs joint segmentation and classification. This approach models each action using a Gaussian mixture using robust low-dimensional action features. Segmentation is achieved by performing classification on overlapping temporal windows, which are then merged to produce the final(More)
We propose a hierarchical approach to multi-action recognition that performs joint classification and segmentation. A given video (containing several consecutive actions) is processed via a sequence of overlapping temporal windows. Each frame in a temporal window is represented through selective lowlevel spatio-temporal features which efficiently capture(More)
We present a novel approach to video summarisation that makes use of a Bag-of-visual-Textures (BoT) approach. Two systems are proposed, one based solely on the BoT approach and another which exploits both colour information and BoT features. On 50 short-term videos from the Open Video Project we show that our BoT and fusion systems both achieve(More)
We present a comparative evaluation of various techniques for action recognition while keeping as many variables as possible controlled. We employ two categories of Riemannian manifolds: symmetric positive definite matrices and linear subspaces. For both categories we use their corresponding nearest neighbour classifiers, kernels, and recent kernelised(More)
A model-based approach to detect and isolate non-concurrent multiple leaks in a pipeline is proposed, only using pressure and flow sensors placed at the pipeline ends. The approach relies on a nonlinear modeling derived from Water–Hammer equations, and related Extended Kalman Filters used to estimate leak coefficients. This extends former results developed(More)
Can we predict the winner of Miss Universe after watching how they strode down the catwalk during the evening gown competition? Fashion gurus say they can! In our work, we study this question from the perspective of computer vision. In particular, we want to understand whether existing computer vision approaches can be used to automatically extract the(More)
HMMs are statistical models used in a very successful and effective form in speech recognition. However, HMM is a general model to describe the dynamic of stochastic processes; therefore it can be applied to a huge variety of biomedical signals. Usually, the HMM parameters are estimated by means of MLE (Maximum Likelihood Estimation) criterion.(More)
Gram stained direct smears test is clinically useful in early identification of infections. Unfortunately, this practice is considered time consuming and labour intensive. Most existing effort in this area is to perform highmagnification analysis of images taken from manually selected areas. In this paper, we address the problem of the automatic selection(More)
