Attribute and simile classifiers for face verification
We present two novel methods for face verification. Our first method - “attribute” classifiers - uses binary classifiers trained to recognize the presence or absence of describable aspects of visualExpand

Visual learning and recognition of 3-d objects from appearance
The problem of automatically learning object models for recognition and pose estimation is addressed. In contrast to the traditional approach, the recognition problem is formulated as one of matchingExpand

Shape from Focus
The shape from focus method presented here uses different focus levels to obtain a sequence of object images. The sum-modified-Laplacian (SML) operator is developed to provide local measures of theExpand

Reflectance and texture of real-world surfaces
In this work, we investigate the visual appearance of real-world surfaces and the dependence of appearance on imaging conditions. We present a BRDF (bidirectional reflectance distribution function)Expand

  • 23 June 1999
A simple algorithm is described that computes the radiometric response function of an imaging system, from images of an arbitrary scene taken using different exposures. The exposure is varied byExpand

Generalized Assorted Pixel Camera: Postcapture Control of Resolution, Dynamic Range, and Spectrum
We propose the concept of a generalized assorted pixel (GAP) camera, which enables the user to capture a single image of a scene and, after the fact, control the tradeoff between spatial resolution,Expand

Vision and the Atmosphere
Current vision systems are designed to perform in clear weather. Needless to say, in any outdoor application, there is no escape from “bad” weather. Ultimately, computer vision systems must includeExpand

Contrast Restoration of Weather Degraded Images
Images of outdoor scenes captured in bad weather suffer from poor contrast. Under bad weather conditions, the light reaching a camera is severely scattered by the atmosphere. The resulting decay inExpand

  • 16 November 1999
Conventional video cameras have limited fields of view which make them restrictive for certain applications in computational vision. A catadioptric sensor uses a combination of lenses and mirrorsExpand

FaceTracer: A Search Engine for Large Collections of Images with Faces
We have created the first image search engine based entirely on faces. Using simple text queries such as "smiling men with blond hair and mustaches," users can search through over 3.1 million facesExpand
