Embedding classifier in pose recognition demo

We've just embedded the classifier execution based into the pose estimation application developed by Feifei Huo in ICT Group at TU Delft. As a result, FeiFei robust model-based torso detector now gets also the pose classifier based on torso model parameters. The video shows the single camera setup which is more challenging than using stereo as the torso parameters exhibit high overlap for the nine poses of interest.

The wire structures represent torso models fitted to the video frames, the crosses show the detected points of interest such as palms (based on skin-color detector). The numbers on the chest show the classifier decision. In this example we use the 10-NN classifier based on 1500 training poses of several people (different from the guys in this test). The decisions are performed at the equal-proir operating point. The complete pose recognition application is a written in C++ application using OpenCV and libPRSD. Note, that libPRSD allows to change the classifier or alter its operating point without recompiling the entire application. Simply export the classifier from Matlab/PRSD Toolbox and load it to the application on-the-fly!

ICPR 2008 poster

We have presented our research on variance estimation in ROC analysis at the International Conference on Pattern Recognition in Tampa, Florida. It was very nice to discuss many pattern recognition issues with hundreds of researchers from pattern recognition and computer vision scientific community.  Excellent invited talks on progress in brain-computer interfaces, manifold learning or classifier fusion!

Fast approximated k-NN classifier

k-th nearest neighbor is a robust data driven classifier. However, the more training samples it uses, the slower it gets in execution. This is because distances from each new observation to all stored training examples (prototypes) need to be computed.
We have developed an approximated k-NN computing distances only to potential nearest neighbors and hence significantly speeding the k-NN execution. Although our strategy to localize the nearest neighbor search is similar to the well-known kd-tree approach, it does not employ per-feature splitting but works directly on distances. Therefore, it scales well to higher dimensionalities unlike the kd-tree which becomes inpractical for more than 20D feature spaces.

Advanced Patter Recognition Course October 2008

In the end of October the Advanced Pattern Recognition course took place at Delft Technical University. The APRcourse is organized by TUDelft and PR Sys Design and is specifically tailored for people from industry in need of state of the art pattern recognition solutions. There were 12 participants from all over the world (Singapore, Canada and several European countries). This time we invited the participants to briefly introduce themselves and the type of problems they are interested in or dealing with in their work. This gave the opportunity to learn each other interests and background, and stimulated more interactions with the teaching staff and the other participants. A cheerful and cooperative atmosphere developed during the week, boosted also by common dinners and pub celebrations. We have really enjoyed the week and wold like to thank all participants for their contribution. It has been a pleasure to meet and work with you all! Thanks to our “knee man” Shameem we have a group picture of almost the complete team.

LabView interface

We’re happy to announce the LabView interface example graciously donated by Anton Voigt from DeBeers Consolidated Mines. LabView is a an industrial development platform based on graphical language paradigm. It enables fast system integration using multitude of hardware components. The example, which will be available in the coming PRSD Studio release, shows how to call the classifiers trained using PRSD Studio directly from the LabView environment running on PC hardware.
