Content Based Image Retrieval Using Segmentation Similarity Measure
Sharif University of Technology
Content Based Image Retrieval (CBIR) is a research area in computer vision. This area comprises of two main steps, low level feature extraction such as color, texture and shape extraction and also similarity measures for comparison of images. The challenge in this system is the existence semantic gap between the low level visual features and the high level image semantics. The aim of research in this field is to reduce this semantic gap. In this study the images are divided into regions using Meanshift method, for color segmentation and then moments of each region as color feature are calculated. Also for extracting texture the images are divided into regions using Jseg method, and then...
Visual tracking using D2-clustering and particle filter, Article 2012 IEEE International Symposium on Signal Processing and Information Technology, ISSPIT 2012 ; 2012 , Pages 230-235 ; 9781467356060 (ISBN) ; Jamzad, M ; Sharif University of Technology
Since tracking algorithms should be robust with respect to appearance changes, online algorithms has been investigated recently instead of offline ones which has shown an acceptable performance in controlled environments. The most challenging issue in online algorithms is updating of the model causing tracking failure because of introducing small errors in each update and disturbing the appearance model (drift). in this paper, we propose an online generative tracking algorithm in order to overcome the challenges such as occlusion, object shape changes, and illumination variations. In each frame, color distribution of target candidates is obtained and the candidate having the lowest distance...
