    Background Subtraction via Robust Dictionary Learning

    We propose a learning-based background subtraction approach based on the theory of sparse representation and dictionary learning. Our method makes the following two important assumptions: (1) the background of...

    Automatic Reasoning about Causal Events in Surveillance Video

    We present a new method for explaining causal interactions among people in video. The input to the overall system is video in which people are low/medium resolution. We extract and maintain a set of qualitativ...

    BigBackground-Based Illumination Compensation for Surveillance Video

    Illumination changes cause challenging problems for video surveillance algorithms, as objects of interest become masked by changes in background appearance. It is desired for such algorithms to maintain a cons...

    Face Recognition from Still Images to Video Sequences: A Local-Feature-Based Framework

    Although automatic faces recognition has shown success for high-quality images under controlled conditions, for video-based recognition it is hard to attain similar levels of performance. We describe in this p...
