This paper introduces a new video-based recognition method to recognize noncooperating individuals at a distance in video who expose side views to the camera. Information from two biometrics sources, side face and gait, is utilized and integrated for recognition. For side face, an enhanced side-face image (ESFI), a higher resolution image compared with the(More)
This paper introduces a new video based recognition method to recognize non-cooperating individuals at a distance in video, who expose side views to the camera. Information from two biometric sources, side face and gait, is utilized and integrated for recognition. For side face, we construct Enhanced Side Face Image (ESFI), a higher resolution image(More)
Human recognition from arbitrary views is an important task for many applications, such as visual surveillance, covert security and access control. It has been found to be very difficult in reality, especially when a person is walking at a distance in read-world outdoor conditions. For optimal performance, the system should use as much information as(More)
BACKGROUND The Chinese population has undergone rapid transition to a high-fat diet. Furthermore, monosodium L-glutamate (MSG) is widely used as a daily food additive in China. Little information is available on the effects of oral MSG and dietary fat supplementation on the amino acid balance in tissues. The present study aimed to determine the effects of(More)
Liraglutide, a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) analogue, has been demonstrated to reduce hepatic steatosis. However, the mechanism of the lipid-lowering effect of liraglutide in the liver remains unclear. The aim of the present study was to investigate the beneficial effect of liraglutide on diet-induced non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and the(More)
A carbon paste electrode (CPE) modified by a monolayer film of sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) was used for detection of dopamine (DA). Cyclic voltammetry demonstrated improved response of the DA sensor. This suggests the effectivity of surface modification of CPE by SDS. Impedance spectroscopy was used for the characterization of CPE surface properties. The(More)
A new video based recognition method is presented to recognize non-cooperating individuals at a distance in video, who expose side views to the camera. Information from two biometric sources, side face and gait, is utilized and integrated at feature level. For face, a high-resolution side face image is constructed from multiple video frames. For gait, Gait(More)
Video-based human recognition at a distance remains a challenging problem for the fusion of multimodal biometrics. As compared to the approach based on match score level fusion, in this paper, we present a new approach that utilizes and integrates information from side face and gait at the feature level. The features of face and gait are obtained separately(More)
Face profile is an important aspect of face recognition and it provides a complementary structure of the face that is seen in the non-frontal view. In the past, several methods have been proposed to recognize face profiles in still images. However, face profile images that are captured at a distance by surveillance cameras usually are video sequences that(More)
