—We present a Bayesian model that allows to automatically generate fixations/foveations and that can be suitably exploited for compression purposes. The twofold aim of this work is to investigate how the exploitation of high-level perceptual cues provided by human faces occurring in the video can enhance the compression process without reducing the(More)
—In this paper we present an extensive evaluation of visual descriptors for the content-based retrieval of remote sensing images. The evaluation includes global, local, and Con-volutional Neural Network (CNNs) features coupled with three different Content-Based Image Retrieval schemas. We conducted all the experiments on two publicly available datasets: the(More)
Understanding visuomotor coordination requires the study of tasks that engage mechanisms for the integration of visual and motor information; in this paper we choose a paradigmatic yet little studied example of such a task, namely realistic drawing. On the one hand, our data indicate that the motor task has little influence on which regions of the image are(More)
—In this work we investigate the use of deep learning for distortion-generic blind image quality assessment. We report on different design choices, ranging from the use of features extracted from pre-trained Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) as a generic image description, to the use of features extracted from a CNN fine-tuned for the image quality task.(More)
We propose a new dataset for the evaluation of food recognition algorithms that can be used in dietary monitoring applications. Each image depicts a real canteen tray with dishes and foods arranged in different ways. Each tray contains multiple instances of food classes. The dataset contains 1027 canteen trays for a total of 3616 food instances belonging to(More)
Smartphones, smartwatches, fitness trackers, and ad-hoc wearable devices are being increasingly used to monitor human activities. Data acquired by the hosted sensors are usually processed by machine-learning-based algorithms to classify human activities. The success of those algorithms mostly depends on the availability of training (labeled) data that, if(More)
Life expectancy keeps growing and, among elderly people, accidental falls occur frequently. A system able to promptly detect falls would help in reducing the injuries that a fall could cause. Such a system should meet the needs of the people to which is designed , so that it is actually used. In particular, the system should be minimally invasive and(More)
In this paper we address the challenging problem of sensorimotor integration, with reference to eye-hand coordination of an artificial agent engaged in a natural drawing task. Under the assumption that eye-hand coupling influences observed movements, a motor continuity hypothesis is exploited to account for how gaze shifts are constrained by hand movements.(More)
