Extracting a fluid dynamic texture and the background from video
Given the video of a still background occluded by a fluid dynamic texture (FDT), this paper addresses the problem of separating the video sequence into its two constituent layers....

Minimal solutions for generic imaging models
A generic imaging model refers to a non-parametric camera model where every camera is treated as a set of unconstrained projection rays. Calibration would simply be a method to ma...

One step beyond histograms: Image representation using Markov stationary features
This paper proposes a general framework called Markov stationary features (MSF) to extend histogram based features. The MSF characterizes the spatial co-occurrence of histogram pa...

A deformable local image descriptor
This paper presents a novel local image descriptor that is robust to general image deformations. A limitation with traditional image descriptors is that they use a single support ...

Edge preserving spatially varying mixtures for image segmentation
A new hierarchical Bayesian model is proposed for image segmentation based on Gaussian mixture models (GMM) with a prior enforcing spatial smoothness. According to this prior, the...

Geo-located image analysis using latent representations
Image categorization is undoubtedly one of the most challenging open problems faced in Computer Vision, far from being solved by employing pure visual cues. Recently, additional t...

Automatic face naming with caption-based supervision
We consider two scenarios of naming people in databases of news photos with captions: (i) finding faces of a single person, and (ii) assigning names to all faces. We combine an in...

Discriminative learning of visual words for 3D human pose estimation
This paper addresses the problem of recovering 3D human pose from a single monocular image, using a discriminative bag-of-words approach. In previous work, the visual words are le...

A hierarchical and contextual model for aerial image understanding
In this paper we present a novel method for parsing aerial images with a hierarchical and contextual model learned in a statistical framework. We learn hierarchies at the scene an...

Correspondence-free multi-camera activity analysis and scene modeling
We propose a novel approach for activity analysis in multiple synchronized but uncalibrated static camera views. We assume that the topology of camera views is unknown and quite a...
