Colorization of a grayscale photograph often requires considerable effort from the user, either by placing numerous color scribbles over the image to initialize a color propagation algorithm, or by looking for a suitable reference image from which color information can be transferred. Even with this user supplied data, colorized images may appear unnatural(More)
In this paper, we propose a novel ellipse detection method for real images. The proposed method uses the information of edge curvature and their convexity in relation to other edge contours as clues for identifying edge contours that can be grouped together. A search region is computed for every edge contour that contains other edge contours eligible for(More)
A neural-based crowd estimation system for surveillance in complex scenes at underground station platform is presented. Estimation is carried out by extracting a set of significant features from sequences of images. Those feature indexes are modeled by a neural network to estimate the crowd density. The learning phase is based on our proposed hybrid of the(More)
The shape from shading problem refers to the well-known fact that most real images usually contain specular components and are affected by unknown reflectivity. In this paper, these limitations are addressed and a new neural-based 3D shape reconstruction model is proposed. The idea behind this approach is to optimize a proper reflectance model by learning(More)
This paper describes a novel structural approach to recognize the human facial features for emotion recognition. Conventionally, features extracted from facial images are represented by relatively poor representations, such as arrays or sequences, with a static data structure. In this study, we propose to extract facial expression features vectors as(More)
Human beings are now living in an era of unparalleled changes especially in the world of science and technology. We have witnessed the impact of DNA research from the way of diagnosing cancer, creating new drugs and to the way of tracing our human ancestors back to over eighty thousand years ago. We have also witnessed the birth of the Information(More)
Many researchers have explored the use of neural-network representations for the adaptive processing of data structures. One of the most popular learning formulations of data structure processing is backpropagation through structure (BPTS). The BPTS algorithm has been successful applied to a number of learning tasks that involve structural patterns such as(More)
