Random Field Topic Model for Semantic Region Analysis in Crowded Scenes from Tracklets
In this paper, a Random Field Topic (RFT) model is proposed for semantic region analysis from motions of objects in crowded scenes. Different from existing approaches of learning semantic regions either from optical flows or from complete trajectories, our model assumes that fragments of trajectories (called tracklets) are observed in crowded scenes. It advances the existing Latent Dirichlet Allocation topic model, by integrating the Markov random fields (MRF) as prior to enforce the spatial and temporal coherence between tracklets during the learning process. Two kinds of MRF, pairwise MRF and the forest of randomly spanning trees, are defined. Another contribution of this model is to include sources and sinks as high-level semantic prior, which effectively improves the learning of semantic regions and the clustering of tracklets. Experiments on a large scale data set, which includes 40, 000+ tracklets collected from the crowded New York Grand Central station, show that our model ...
