Research in recommender systems is now starting to recognise the importance of multiple selection criteria to improve the recommendation output. In this paper, we present a novel approach to multi-criteria recommendation, based on the idea of clustering users in "preference lattices" (partial orders) according to their criteria preferences. We assume that(More)
Multiple object tracking (MOT) is a very challenging task yet of fundamental importance for many practical applications. In this paper, we focus on the problem of tracking multiple players in sports video which is even more difficult due to the abrupt movements of players and their complex interactions. To handle the difficulties in this problem, we present(More)
The current proliferation of software services means users should be supported when selecting one service out of the many which meet their needs. Recommender Systems provide such support for selecting products and conventional services, yet their direct application to software services is not straightforward, because of the current scarcity of available(More)
— Vehicle detection in traffic scenes is a fundamental task for intelligent transportation system and has many practical applications as diverse as traffic monitoring, intelligent scheduling and autonomous navigation. In recent years, the number of detection approaches in monocular images has grown rapidly. However, most of them focus on detecting other(More)
Background subtraction plays a key role in many surveillance systems. A good background subtractor should not only be able to robustly detect targets under different situations (e.g. moving and static), but also to adaptively maintain the background model against various influences (e.g. dynamic scenes and noises). This paper proposes a novel background(More)
Tracking objects that undergo abrupt appearance changes and heavy occlusions is a challenging problem which conventional tracking methods can barely handle. To address the problem, we propose an online structure learning algorithm that contains three layers: an object is represented by a mixture of online structure models (OSMs) which are learnt from(More)
Hand posture recognition (HPR) plays an important role in human-computer interaction (HCI) since it is one of the most common and natural ways of communication among human beings. Different fingers often represent different meanings which will attract more attentions in HPR research. Based on finger geometric feature and its classification, we develop a HPR(More)
Crowd counting which aims at obtaining the number of people within a scene is an important computer vision task. While most previous methods try to count people within one frame, this paper addresses this problem using the detection flow which is defined as a set of object detection responses along the temporal video sequence. We argue that counting based(More)
