Training a generic objectness measure to produce a small set of candidate object windows, has been shown to speed up the classical sliding window object detection paradigm. We observe that generic objects with well-defined closed boundary can be discriminated by looking at the norm of gradients, with a suitable resizing of their corresponding image windows(More)
One of the key challenges in human action recognition from video sequences is how to model an action sufficiently. Therefore, in this paper we propose a novel motion-based representation called Motion Context (MC), which is insensitive to the scale and direction of an action , by employing image representation techniques. A MC captures the distribution of(More)
Local Coordinate Coding (LCC) [18] is a method for modeling functions of data lying on non-linear manifolds. It provides a set of anchor points which form a local coordinate system, such that each data point on the manifold can be approximated by a linear combination of its anchor points, and the linear weights become the local coordinate coding. In this(More)
Object recognition has made great strides recently. However, the best methods, such as those based on kernel-SVMs are highly computationally intensive. The problem of how to accelerate the evaluation process without decreasing accuracy is thus of current interest. In this paper, we deal with this problem by using the idea of ranking. We propose a cascaded(More)
Linear SVMs are efficient in both training and testing, however the data in real applications is rarely linearly separable. Non-linear kernel SVMs are too computationally intensive for applications with large-scale data sets. Recently locally linear classifiers have gained popularity due to their efficiency whilst remaining competitive with kernel methods.(More)
Person re-identification aims to maintain the identity of an individual in diverse locations through different non-overlapping camera views. The problem is fundamentally challenging due to appearance variations resulting from differing poses, illumination and configurations of camera views. To deal with these difficulties, we propose a novel visual word(More)
