This paper introduces a general purpose performance measurement scheme for image segmentation algorithms. Performance parameters that function in real-time distinguish this method from previous approaches that depended on an a priori knowledge of the correct segmentation. A low level, context independent definition of segmentation is used to obtain a set of(More)
We address the issue of visual saliency from three perspectives. First, we consider saliency detection as a frequency domain analysis problem. Second, we achieve this by employing the concept of nonsaliency. Third, we simultaneously consider the detection of salient regions of different size. The paper proposes a new bottom-up paradigm for detecting visual(More)
A novel approach to 3D part segmentation is presented. Beginning with range data of a 3D object, we simulate the charge density distribution over an ob-ject's surface which has been tessellated by a triangular mesh. We then locate the object part boundary at deep surface concavities by tracing local charge density minima. Finally, we decompose the object(More)
At the retinal level, the strategies utilized by biological visual systems allow them to outperform machine vision systems, serving to motivate the design of electronic or "smart" sensors based on similar principles. Design of such sensors in silicon first requires a model of retinal information processing which captures the essential features exhibited by(More)
We present a novel approach for video parsing and simultaneous online learning of dominant and anomalous behaviors in surveillance videos. Dominant behaviors are those occurring frequently in videos and hence, usually do not attract much attention. They can be characterized by different complexities in space and time, ranging from a scene background to(More)
