Recent approaches in depth-based human activity analysis achieved outstanding performance and proved the effectiveness of 3D representation for classification of action classes. Currently available depth-based and RGB+Dbased action recognition benchmarks have a number of limitations, including the lack of training samples, distinct class labels, camera(More)
In this paper, we investigate the prospect of using bicoherence features for blind image splicing detection. Image splicing is an essential operation for digital photomontaging, which in turn is a technique for creating image forgery. We examine the properties of bicoherence features on a data set, which contains image blocks of diverse image properties. We(More)
In this chapter, we will review the research area of passive-blind image forensics, i.e., an form of image analysis for finding out the condition of an image without relying on pre-registration or pre-embedded information. We consider the two main functions of passive-blind image forensics as being image forgery detection and image source identification. In(More)
The ease of creating image forgery using image-splicing techniques will soon make our naive trust on image authenticity a tiling of the past. In prior work, we observed the capability of the bicoherence magnitude and phase features for image splicing detection. To bridge the gap between empirical observations and theoretical justifications, in this paper,(More)
— Face recognition is an increasingly popular method for user authentication. However, face recognition is susceptible to playback attacks. Therefore, a reliable way to detect malicious attacks is crucial to the robustness of the system. We propose and validate a novel physics-based method to detect images recaptured from printed material using only a(More)
Recent advances in fast light transport acquisition have motivated new applications for forward and inverse light transport. While forward light transport enables image relighting, inverse light transport provides new possibilities for analyzing and cancelling interreflections, to enable applications like projector radiometric compensation and light bounce(More)
In this paper, we present a new single-image camera response function (CRF) estimation method using geometry invariants (GI). We derive mathematical properties and geometric interpretation for GI, which lend insight to addressing various algorithm implementation issues in a principled way. In contrast to the previous single-image CRF estimation methods, our(More)
Traditional image stitching using parametric transforms such as homography, only produces perceptually correct composites for planar scenes or parallax free camera motion between source frames. This limits mosaicing to source images taken from the same physical location. In this paper , we introduce a smoothly varying affine stitching field which is(More)
Detection of planar surfaces in a generic scene is difficult when the illumination is complex and less intense, and the surfaces have non-uniform colors (e.g., a movie poster). As a result, the specularity, if appears, is superimposed with the surface color pattern, and hence the observation of uniform specularity is no longer sufficient for identifying(More)
