Gene expression of social actions in Drosophilae has been attracting wide interest from biologists, medical scientists and psychologists. Gene-edited Drosophilae have been used as a test platform for experimental investigation. For example, Parkinson’s genes can be embedded into a group of newly bred Drosophilae for research purpose. However, human observation of numerous tiny Drosophilae for a long term is an arduous work, and the dependence on human’s acute perception is highly unreliable. As… Expand


Detecting Social Actions of Fruit Flies
A system that tracks pairs of fruit flies and automatically detects and classifies their actions and compares the value of a frame-level feature representation with the more elaborate notion of ‘bout features’ that capture the structure within actions is described. Expand
Fighting fruit flies: A model system for the study of aggression
A quantitative framework for studying aggression in common laboratory strains of the fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster, is developed and the existence of recurrent patterns in behaviors with some similarity to those seen during courtship is demonstrated. Expand
Human Disease Models in Drosophila melanogaster and the Role of the Fly in Therapeutic Drug Discovery
The basic biology of the fly is reviewed and models of human diseases and opportunities for therapeutic discovery for central nervous system disorders, inflammatory disorders, cardiovascular disease, cancer, and diabetes are discussed. Expand
Selective spatio-temporal interest points
This paper presents a novel approach for robust and selective STIP detection, by applying surround suppression combined with local and temporal constraints, and introduces a novel vocabulary building strategy by combining spatial pyramid and vocabulary compression techniques, resulting in improved performance and efficiency.

Drosophila as a model for human neurodegenerative disease.
This review focuses on fruit fly models of human neurodegenerative diseases, with emphasis on how fly models have provided new insights into various aspects of human diseases. Expand
Rate-Invariant Analysis of Trajectories on Riemannian Manifolds with Application in Visual Speech Recognition
This work investigates a recent framework from statistics literature that handles nuisance variability in temporal evolutions of features using a cost function/distance for temporal registration and statistical summarization & modeling of trajectories, and applies this framework to the problem of speech recognition using both audio and visual components.

Speed up kernel discriminant analysis
Spectral Regression Kernel Discriminant Analysis is presented, which casts discriminant analysis into a regression framework, which facilitates both efficient computation and the use of regularization techniques. Expand
Design Principles of Insect and Vertebrate Visual Systems
It is argued that vertebrate and fly visual circuits utilize common design principles and that taking advantage of this phylogenetic conservation will speed progress in elucidating both functional strategies and developmental mechanisms, as has already occurred in other areas of neurobiology.

Behavior recognition via sparse spatio-temporal features
It is shown that the direct 3D counterparts to commonly used 2D interest point detectors are inadequate, and an alternative is proposed, and a recognition algorithm based on spatio-temporally windowed data is devised. Expand
