Localizing objects in cluttered backgrounds is challenging under large-scale weakly supervised conditions. Due to the cluttered image condition, objects usually have large ambiguity with backgrounds. Besides, there is also a lack of effective algorithm for large-scale weakly supervised localization in cluttered backgrounds. However, backgrounds contain(More)
Object localization is a challenging problem due to variations in object’s structure and illumination. Although existing part based models have achieved impressive progress in the past several years, their improvement is still limited by low-level feature representation. Therefore, this paper mainly studies the description of object structure from both(More)
Recent gait recognition systems often suffer from the challenges including viewing angle variation and large intra-class variations. In order to address these challenges, this paper presents a robust View Transformation Model for gait recognition. Based on the gait energy image, the proposed method establishes a robust view transformation model via robust(More)
Real scene video surveillance always involves low resolutions, lack of illumination or cluttered environments, which leads to insufficiency of discriminative details for the target. In this situation, discrimination based tracking methods could fail. To address this problem, this paper presents an adaptive multi-feature integration method in terms of(More)
This paper presents a system of data decomposition and spatial mixture modeling for part based models. Recently, many enhanced part based models (with e.g., multiple features, more components or parts) have been proposed. Nevertheless, those enhanced models bring high computation cost together with the risk of over-fitting. To tackle this problem, we(More)
Object classification and detection are two fundamental problems in computer vision and pattern recognition. In this paper, we discuss these two research topics, including their backgrounds, challenges, recent progress and our solutions which achieve excellent performance in PASCAL VOC competitions on object classification and detection. Moreover, potential(More)
The European Pharmacopoeia (Ph. Eur.) monograph for Erythropoietin Concentrated Solution describes a capillary zone electrophoresis method for identification of recombinant human erythropoietin. However, this method has shown poor reproducibility due to inadequate capillary conditioning. We have modified the Ph. Eur. method to make it more robust and(More)
Markov Random Field (MRF) is an important tool and has been widely used in many vision tasks. Thus, the optimization of MRFs is a problem of fundamental importance. Recently, Veskler and Kumar et. al propose the range move algorithms, which are one of the most successful solvers to this problem. However, two problems have limited the applicability of(More)
Deformable object matching, which is also called elastic matching or deformation matching, is an important and challenging problem in computer vision. Although numerous deformation models have been proposed in different matching tasks, not many of them investigate the intrinsic physics underlying deformation. Due to the lack of physical analysis, these(More)
Occlusion is a main challenge for human pose estimation, which is largely ignored in popular tree structure models. The tree structure model is simple and convenient for exact inference, but short in modeling the occlusion coherence especially in the case of self-occlusion. We propose an occlusion aware graphical model which is able to model both(More)
