There has been a tremendous growth in video data the last decade. People are using mobile phones and tablets to take, share or watch videos more than ever before. Video cameras are around us almost everywhere in the public domain (e.g. stores, streets, public facilities, ...etc). Efficient and effective retrieval ...

This article presents an overview of the video copy detection benchmark which was run over a period of 4 years (2008--2011) as part of the TREC Video Retrieval (TRECVID) workshop series. The main contributions of the article include i) an examination of the evolving design of the evaluation framework and ...

Recently, a promising research direction has emerged in sign language recognition (SLR) aimed at breaking up signs into manageable subunits. This paper presents a novel SL learning technique based on boosted subunits. Three main contributions distinguish the proposed work from traditional approaches: 1) A novel boosting framework is developed to ...

This paper begins by considering a number of important design questions for a large-scale, widely available, multimedia test collection intended to support long-term scientific evaluation and comparison of content-based video analysis and exploitation systems. While the collection presented here is not quite web-scale, it is to our knowledge the largest ...

April 2009 Pattern Recognition Letters: Volume 30 Issue 6, April, 2009
Publisher: Elsevier Science Inc.
Citation Count: 18

Modelling and segmenting subunits is one of the important topics in sign language study. Many scholars have proposed the functional definition to subunits from the view of linguistics while the problem of efficiently implementing it using computer vision techniques is a challenge. On the other hand, a number of subunit ...

This paper describes an evaluation of automatic video summarization systems run on rushes from several BBC dramatic series. It was carried out under the auspices of the TREC Video Retrieval Evaluation (TRECVid) as a followup to the 2007 video summarization workshop held at ACM Multimedia 2007. 31 research teams submitted ...

November 2006 ISVC'06: Proceedings of the Second international conference on Advances in Visual Computing - Volume Part I
Publisher: Springer-Verlag
Citation Count: 2

In this paper we present a system that performs automatic gesture recognition. The system consists of two main components: (i) A unified technique for segmentation and tracking of face and hands using a skin detection algorithm along with handling occlusion between skin objects to keep track of the status of ...

This paper presents a unified system for segmentation and tracking of face and hands in a sign language recognition using a single camera. Unlike much related work that uses colour gloves, we detect skin by combining 3 useful features: colour, motion and position. These features together, represent the skin colour ...

Skin segmentation is the cornerstone of many applications such as gesture recognition, face detection, and objectionable image filtering. In this paper, we attempt to address the skin segmentation problem for gesture recognition. Initially, given a gesture video sequence, a generic skin model is applied to the first couple of frames ...
