Visual Saliency Estimation via Attribute Based Classifiers and Conditional Random Field

Demirel, Berkan
Cinbiş, Ramazan Gökberk
Visual Saliency Estimation is a computer vision problem that aims to find the regions of interest that are frequently in eye focus in a scene or an image. Since most computer vision problems require discarding irrelevant regions in a scene, visual saliency estimation can be used as a preprocessing step in such problems. In this work, we propose a method to solve top-down saliency estimation problem using Attribute Based Classifiers and Conditional Random Fields (CRF). Experimental results show that attribute-based classifiers encode visual information better than low level features and the presented approach generates promising results compared to state-of-theart approaches on Graz-02 dataset.

RGBD Data Based Pose Estimation Why Sensor Fusion
GEDİK, OSMAN SERDAR; Alatan, Abdullah Aydın (2015-07-09)
Performing high accurate pose estimation has been an attractive research area in the field of computer vision; hence, there are a plenty of algorithms proposed for this purpose. Starting with RGB or gray scale image data, methods utilizing data from 3D sensors, such as Time of Flight (TOF) or laser range finder, and later those based on RGBD data have emerged chronologically. Algorithms that exploit image data mainly rely on minimization of image plane error, i.e. the reprojection error. On the other hand, ...
Efficient detection and tracking of salient regions for visual processing on mobile platforms
Serhat, Gülhan; Saranlı, Afşar; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2009)
Visual Attention is an interesting concept that constantly widens its application areas in the field of image processing and computer vision. The main idea of visual attention is to find the locations on the image that are visually attractive. In this thesis, the visually attractive regions are extracted and tracked in video sequences coming from the vision systems of mobile platforms. First, the salient regions are extracted in each frame and a feature vector is constructed for each one. Then Scale Invaria...
Motion estimation using complex discrete wavelet transform
Sarı, Hüseyin; Severcan, Mete; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2003)
The estimation of optical flow has become a vital research field in image sequence analysis especially in past two decades, which found applications in many fields such as stereo optics, video compression, robotics and computer vision. In this thesis, the complex wavelet based algorithm for the estimation of optical flow developed by Magarey and Kingsbury is implemented and investigated. The algorithm is based on a complex version of the discrete wavelet transform (CDWT), which analyzes an image through blo...
Shape descriptors based on intersection consistency and global binary patterns
Sivri, Erdal; Kalkan, Sinan; Department of Computer Engineering (2012)
Shape description is an important problem in computer vision because most vision tasks that require comparing or matching visual entities rely on shape descriptors. In this thesis, two novel shape descriptors are proposed, namely Intersection Consistency Histogram (ICH) and Global Binary Patterns (GBP). The former is based on a local regularity measure called Intersection Consistency (IC), which determines whether edge pixels in an image patch point towards the center or not. The second method, called Globa...
3D face modeling using multiple images
