Extracting Key Features for Analysis and Recognition in Computer Vision

Abstract (Summary)

In Computer Vision applications, there often exist the need to extract features to facilitate the process of analysis and recognition. In our key feature approach, we first study a computational framework of modeling human action styles, which extracts key motion trajectories for analysis and recognition assuming a given representation (e.g., trajectories and three-mode PCA). By emphasizing those key trajectories, the framework is capable of improving the modeling efficiency and accuracy, while being adaptive to multiple action style modeling criteria. We then extend the key feature approach in considering a general problem of recognition and analysis without an explicit representation (e.g., using raw images). We want to automatically extract key features to form an optimal internal representation of the data (images), which is a fundamental problem in Computer Vision research. By emphasizing the key information for representation, our approach is capable of improving the efficiency and accuracy for analysis and recognition in a wide range of applications in Computer Vision.
