The Pascal Visual Object Classes (VOC) challenge is a benchmark in visual object category recognition and detection, providing the vision and machine learning communities with a standard dataset of images and annotation, and standard evaluation procedures. Organised annually from 2005 to present, the challenge and its associated dataset has become accepted(More)
The Pascal Visual Object Classes (VOC) challenge consists of two components: (i) a publicly available dataset of images together with ground truth annotation and standardised evaluation software; and (ii) an annual competition and workshop. There are five challenges: classification, detection, segmentation, action classification, and person layout. In this(More)
The goal of this challenge is to recognize objects from a number of visual object classes in images of realistic scenes. It is fundamentally a supervised learning learning problem in that a training set of labelled images is provided. The object classes are: motorbikes, bicycles, people and cars. Twelve participants entered the challenge. A full description(More)
Human pose estimation is the task of estimating the ‘pose’ or configuration of a person’s body parts e.g. labeling the position and orientation of the head, torso, arms and legs in an image. In this paper we propose an extension of the pictorial structure model (PSM) approach [2]. Our method incorporates richer models of appearance and prior over pose(More)
We investigate the problem of automatically labelling appearances of characters in TV or film material. This is tremendously challenging due to the huge variation in imaged appearance of each character and the weakness and ambiguity of available annotation. However, we demonstrate that high precision can be achieved by combining multiple sources of(More)
The task of 2-D articulated human pose estimation in natural images is extremely challenging due to the high level of variation in human appearance. These variations arise from different clothing, anatomy, imaging conditions and the large number of poses it is possible for a human body to take. Recent work has shown state-of-the-art results by partitioning(More)
The PASCAL Visual Object Classes Challenge ran from February to March 2005. The goal of the challenge was to recognize objects from a number of visual object classes in realistic scenes (i.e. not pre-segmented objects). Four object classes were selected: motorbikes, bicycles, cars and people. Twelve teams entered the challenge. In this chapter we provide(More)
We investigate the problem of automatically labelling appearances of characters in TV or film material with their names. This is tremendously challenging due to the huge variation in imaged appearance of each character and the weakness and ambiguity of available annotation. However, we demonstrate that high precision can be achieved by combining multiple(More)
We investigate the problem of automatically labelling faces of characters in TV or movie material with their names, using only weak supervision from automaticallyaligned subtitle and script text. Our previous work (Everingham et al. [8]) demonstrated promising results on the task, but the coverage of the method (proportion of video labelled) and(More)
