Image and Video Analysis

Fig. 1: Example of Video Event Analysis

Many emerging applications require extraction of meaningful information from digital images and video streams, such as object detection/tracking, multimedia information search/summarization, intelligent surveillance and remote monitoring. In our research, we aim at developing object-level image/video analysis technologies to facilitate effective and efficient extraction of the useful contents and semantics from multimedia database. The core techniques used in this research topic include image/video processing, computer vision, pattern recognition and machine learning.

Many issues have been or will be explored in this area.

  • Image/Video Feature Extraction
  • Visual Object Detection and Statistical Modeling
  • Background Subtraction
  • Change Detection of Visual/Audio Streams
  • Video Event Analysis
