This paper describes a machine learning approach for visual object detection which is capable of processing images extremely rapidly and achieving high detection rates. This work is distinguished by three key contributions. The first is the introduction of a new image representation called the “Integral Image” which allows the features used by our detector(More)
This paper describes a face detection framework that is capable of processing images extremely rapidly while achieving high detection rates. There are three key contributions. The first is the introduction of a new image representation called the “Integral Image” which allows the features used by our detector to be computed very quickly. The second is a(More)

A new information-theoretic approach is presented for finding the pose of an object in an image. The technique does not require information about the surface properties of the object, besides its shape, and is robust with respect to variations of illumination. In our derivation few assumptions are made about the nature of the imaging process. As a result(More)
This paper describes a pedestrian detection system that integrates image intensity information with motion information. We use a detection style algorithm that scans a detector over two consecutive frames of a video sequence. The detector is trained (using AdaBoost) to take advantage of both motion and appearance information to detect a walking person. Past(More)
This paper develops a new approach for extremely fast detection in domains where the distribution of positive and negative examples is highly skewed (e.g. face detection or database retrieval). In such domains a cascade of simple classifiers each trained to achieve high detection rates and modest false positive rates can yield a final detector with many(More)
Example-based methods are effective for parameter estimation problems when the underlying system is simple or the dimensionality of the input is low. For complex and high-dimensional problems such as pose estimation, the number of required examples and the computational complexity rapidly become prohibitively high. We introduce a new algorithm that learns a(More)
This paper extends the face detection framework proposed by Viola and Jones 2001 to handle profile views and rotated faces. As in the work of Rowley et al 1998. and Schneiderman et al. 2000, we build different detectors for different views of the face. A decision tree is then trained to determine the viewpoint class (such as right profile or rotated 60(More)
We present an approach for image retrieval using a very large number of highly selective features and efficient learning of queries. Our approach is predicated on the assumption that each image is generated by a sparse set of visual “causes” and that images which are visually similar share causes. We propose a mechanism for computing a very large number of(More)
