About this book

This book presents a broad selection of cutting-edge research, covering both theoretical and practical aspects of reconstruction, registration, and recognition. The text provides an overview of challenging areas and descriptions of novel algorithms. Features: investigates visual features, trajectory features, and stereo matching; reviews the main challenges of semi-supervised object recognition, and a novel method for human action categorization; presents a framework for the visual localization of MAVs, and for the use of moment constraints in convex shape optimization; examines solutions to the co-recognition problem, and distance-based classifiers for large-scale image classification; describes how the four-color theorem can be used for solving MRF problems; introduces a Bayesian generative model for understanding indoor environments, and a boosting approach for generalizing the k-NN rule; discusses the issue of scene-specific object detection, and an approach for making temporal super resolution video.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“The goal of this book is to provide an overview of recent works in computer vision. … The book is intended more for engineers and researchers who will use it as a relevant source of knowledge in the computer vision field, and benefit from the presence of recent and representative methods that are among the best existing solutions to solve the problems reviewed in the book.” (Sebastien Lefevre, Computing Reviews, June, 2014)
