Attributes are visual concepts that can be detected by machines, understood by humans, and shared across categories. They are particularly useful for fine-grained domains where categories are closely related to one other (e.g. bird species recognition). In such scenarios, relevant attributes are often local (e.g. “white belly”), but the(More)
We introduce a new approach for part-based human pose estimation using multi-layer composite models, in which each layer is a tree-structured pictorial structure that models pose at a different scale and with a different graphical structure. At the highest level, the submodel acts as a person detector, while at the lowest level, the body is decomposed into(More)
Photo-sharing websites have become very popular in the last few years, leading to huge collections of online images. In addition to image data, these websites collect a variety of multimodal metadata about photos including text tags, captions, GPS coordinates, camera metadata, user profiles, etc. However, this metadata is not well constrained and is often(More)
In this paper, we present personalized service recommendation algorithm PSRA. Based on web service semantics, demographic factors and users' recommendation ratings and by redefining similarity measurement, PSRA presents different succeeding service recommendation towards the same current service to meet users' personalized needs. Experiment results show(More)
Vehicle recognition is a challenging task with many useful applications. State-of-the-art methods usually learn discriminative classifiers for different vehicle categories or different viewpoint angles, but little work has explored vehicle recognition using semantic visual attributes. In this paper, we propose a novel iterative multiple instance learning(More)
Highly enantioselective catalytic asymmetric intramolecular cascade imidization-nucleophilic addition-lactamization of N(1)-alkylethane-1,2-diamine with methyl 2-formylbenzoate catalyzed by a chiral phosphoric acid represents the first efficient method for the preparation of medicinally interesting chiral 2,3-dihydro-1H-imidazo[2,1-a]isoindol-5(9bH)-ones(More)
In this paper, we propose a new approach for the person re-identification problem, discovering the correct matches for a query pedestrian image from a set of gallery images. It is well motivated by our observation that the overall complex inter-camera transformation, caused by the change of camera viewpoints, person poses and view illuminations, can be(More)
A valuable class of new heterocyclic and alicyclic prochiral α-aminomethylacrylates has been conveniently synthesized through a three-step transformation involving a Baylis-Hillman reaction, O-acetylation, and a subsequent allylic amination. The corresponding novel β(2)-amino acid derivatives were prepared with excellent enantioselectivities and high yields(More)
