A Morphological Approach to Curvature-Based Evolution of Curves and Surfaces
We introduce new results connecting differential and morphological operators that provide a formal and theoretically grounded approach for stable and fast contour evolution. Expand
Revisiting Linear Discriminant Techniques in Gender Recognition
The paper reviews the state-of-the-art in gender classification, giving special attention to linear techniques and their relations. Expand
Robust gender recognition by exploiting facial attributes dependencies
We study the dependencies among gender, age and pose facial attributes and prove that we can improve the performance of gender classifiers by exploiting these dependencies. Expand
Morphological snakes
We introduce a morphological approach to curve evolution. The differential operators used in the standard PDE snake models can be approached using morphological operations on a binary level set. ByExpand
Recognising facial expressions in video sequences
We introduce a system that processes a sequence of images of a front-facing human face and recognises a set of facial expressions and estimate the deformation of its non-rigid components. Expand
A Deeply-Initialized Coarse-to-fine Ensemble of Regression Trees for Face Alignment
We present DCFE, a real-time facial landmark regression method based on a coarse-to-fine Ensemble of Regression Trees (ERT) to generate probability maps of landmarks location. Expand
Towards robust metric reconstruction via a dynamic uncalibrated stereo head
We consider the problem of metrically reconstructing a scene viewed by a moving stereo head, and show that a static stereo head constitutes a degenerate camera configuration for carrying out self-calibration. Expand
Efficient illumination independent appearance-based face tracking
We introduce a linear subspace representation in which the appearance of a face is represented by the addition of two approximately independent linear subspaces modelling facial expressions and illumination, respectively. Expand
Real-time tracking and estimation of plane pose
We present a method to estimate in real-time the position and orientation of a previously viewed planar patch. Expand
Multi-class segmentation of neuronal structures in electron microscopy images
Simultaneously segmenting several neuronal structures described at different scales provides voxel classification algorithms with highly discriminating features that significantly improve segmentation accuracy. Expand
