No more drama! Multimodal face-recognition techniques

Facial recognition algorithms nowadays have problems with extreme facial expressions, especially dramatic ones that appear in multimedia applications, social networks and digital entertainment. For example, various dramatic poses, different illumination or various expressions make things harder for computer algorithms to track and recognize faces. One of these niches with extreme facial gestures is sports – […]

80-million gallery

Social media websites today are a vast gallery of photographs and pictures, and a great challenge for computer vision researchers is to devise algorithms and methods to index, search, track and identify millions of images and other media. That includes face tracking and detection on a large scale. IEEE researchers have devised a method which […]

Learning to see by moving

Even though motor theories of perception have a long history, there’s has been a little amount of work in computational models of perception that make use of motor information. Nowadays the dominant paradigm in computer vision for learning various features relies on training neural networks to recognize objects using millions of annotated images. It seems […]

Who’s behind the camera: computer vision and author identification

Predicting authorship and detecting forgeries has been a long-time application of computer vision in art and science. Humans, as visual beings, have a remarkable ability to draw different conclusions from a piece of artwork, even without formal training, and to obtain information such as: where the artwork takes place, what kind of artist had made […]
