Active Shape Models-Their Training and Application
!, Model-based vision is firmly established as a robust approach to recognizing and locating known rigid objects in the presence of noise, clutter, and occlusion. It is more problematic to applyExpand

Active Appearance Models
We describe a new method of matching statistical models of appearance to images. A set of model parameters control modes of shape and gray-level variation learned from a training set. We construct anExpand

Active Appearance Models
We demonstrate a novel method of interpreting images using an Active Appearance Model (AAM). An AAM contains a statistical model of the shape and grey-level appearance of the object of interest whichExpand

Statistical models of appearance for computer vision
1 This is an ongoing draft of a report describing our work on Active Shape Models and Active Appearance Models. Hopefully it will be expanded to become more comprehensive, when I get the time. MyExpand

Feature Detection and Tracking with Constrained Local Models
We present an efficient and robust model matching method which uses a joint shape and texture appearance model to generate a set of region template detectors. The model is fitted to an unseen imageExpand

Toward Automatic Simulation of Aging Effects on Face Images
The process of aging causes significant alterations in the facial appearance of individuals. When compared with other sources of variation in face images, appearance variation due to aging displaysExpand

The Use of Active Shape Models for Locating Structures in Medical Images
This paper describes a technique for building compact models of the shape and appearance of flexible objects (such as organs) seen in 2-D images. The models are derived from the statistics of sets ofExpand

A minimum description length approach to statistical shape modeling
We describe a method for automatically building statistical shape models from a training set of example boundaries/surfaces. These models show considerable promise as a basis for segmenting andExpand

Training Models of Shape from Sets of Examples
A method for building flexible shape models is presented in which a shape is represented by a set of labelled points. The technique determines the statistics of the points over a collection ofExpand
