Canine gaze tracking: dogs can perceive human emotions

Scientists have shown for the first time that not only people recognize emotions, but the mood-reading ability applies to canines as well. Scientists from Lincoln University conducted a study using computer vision techniques to see whether dogs have the ability to tune into another species – humans and their emotions. Professor Daniel Mills led the […]

I like to move it: model for causal motion segmentation

The human ability to detect and segment moving objects works great in every case. We can observe walking stick bugs, since the insect is immediately visible when it starts moving. However, computers usually have problems with multiple objects, complex background geometry, motion of the observer, and even camouflage. People also detect motion instantaneously. There has […]

Face2Face: live video editing of facial expressions

  “It’s photoshopped!” is a line that is often heard regarding retouched images. However, nobody still expects to say the same about a video, since the editing of multiple frame requires not only a lot of time and hard work, but good rendering, to make the result believable. Stanford, Max Planck and Erlangen-Nuremberg researchers have […]

Walk like an Egyptian: computer vision and walking identification

Researchers from the University of Malaga and Cordoba have studied gait recognition. Gait is the pattern of movement of the limbs of animals, including humans, during locomotion over a solid substrate. The goal of gait recognition is to identify people by the way they walk. This biometric approach is performed at a distance, and does […]

Can we still avoid automatic face detection?

After decades of research, automatic face detection and recognition systems are now reliable and widespread. Of course, the result of this is that the users who wish to avoid automatic recognition are becoming less capable of doing so. We currently live in a technology-dependent society, where everyone carries a cellphone with a camera in their […]
