This paper proposes a method for detecting changes of a scene using a pair of its vehicular, omnidirectional images. Previous approaches to the problem require the use of a 3D scene model and/or pixel-level registration between different time images. They are also computationally costly for estimating city-scale changes. We propose a novel change detection(More)
This paper proposes a method for detecting temporal changes of the three-dimensional structure of an outdoor scene from its multi-view images captured at two separate times. For the images, we consider those captured by a camera mounted on a vehicle running in a city street. The method estimates scene structures probabilistically, not deterministically, and(More)
This paper explores the effective use of Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) in the context of washed-away building detection from pre- and post-tsunami aerial images. To this end, we compile a dedicated, labeled aerial image dataset to construct models that classify whether a building is washed-away. Each datum in the set is a pair of pre- and(More)
In this paper, we propose a method for cloud removal from visible light RGB satellite images by extending the conditional Generative Adversarial Networks (cGANs) from RGB images to multispectral images. Satellite images have been widely utilized for various purposes, such as natural environment monitoring (pollution, forest or rivers), transportation(More)
Automated visual analysis is an effective method for understanding changes in natural phenomena over massive city-scale landscapes. However, the viewpoint spectrum across which image data can be acquired is extremely wide, ranging from macro-level overhead (aerial) images spanning several kilometers to micro-level front-parallel (street-view) images that(More)
Human activity recognition by wearable sensors will enable a next-generation human-oriented ubiquitous computing. However, most of the existing research on human activity recognition is based on a small number of subjects, and lab-created-data. To overcome this problem, we hold HASC Challenge as a technical challenge to collect the data for activity(More)
