The automatic extraction and recognition of news captions and annotations can be of great help locating topics of interest in digital news video libraries. To achieve this goal, we present a technique, called Video OCR (Optical Character Reader), which detects, extracts , and reads text areas in digital video data. In this paper, we address problems,(More)
We have developed Name-It, a system that associates faces and names in news videos. The system is given news videos, which include image sequences and transcripts obtained from audio tracks or closed caption texts. The system can then either infer possible name candidates for a given face, or locate a face in news videos by name. To accomplish this task,(More)
In this paper, we describe the Toshiba event detection system for TRECVID surveillance event detection task [1] that detects three TRECVID required events (E05:PersonRuns, E19:ElevatorNoEntry, and E20:OpposingFlow). Our system (" Toshiba_1 p-cohog_1 ") consists of four components: (1) robust change detection based on the combination of pixel intensity(More)

The aim of this study is to obtain a quantitative anatomical description of the hyoid bone and mandible using three-dimensional computed tomography. Hyoid bones were obtained from a total of 101 cadavers varying in age from 67 to 102 years. The percentage of symmetrical U-type and asymmetrical-type hyoid bones was low compared with symmetrical V type (14.9,(More)
This paper presents a method to automatically align a pose of 3D shape data to fit another shape data taken from different viewpoints. One of the difficult issues is to handle shape data which have surface information in different sides due to the difference in viewpoints, and to deal with objects in different scale. We detect local feature points on the(More)
In this paper, a high-performance face recognition terminal for access control systems is described. The terminal is specially designed to acquire stable face patterns for reliable recognition. To determine design of an image input device, we evaluate similarity values and their changes for three types of lighting apparatuses. Our basic experiment indicates(More)
