  • Hedau, Varsha (2012-02-06)
    An image is nothing but a projection of the physical world around us, where objects do not occur randomly but follow certain spatial rules. Many existing computer vision approaches tend to ignore this aspect of understanding ...

  • Nguyen, Tan Huu (2016-11-23)
    When a sample is illuminated by an imaging field, its fingerprints are left on the amplitude and the phase of the emerging wave. Capturing the information of the wavefront grants us a deeper understanding of the optical ...

  • Ghanem, Bernard S. (2010-05-19)
    Temporal or dynamic textures are video sequences that are spatially repetitive and temporally stationary. Dynamic textures are temporal analogs of the more common spatial texture. They are a family of visual phenomena where ...

  • Akbas, Emre (2011-08-26)
    This dissertation is about extracting as well as making use of the structure and hierarchy present in images. We develop a new low-level, multiscale, hierarchical image segmentation algorithm designed to detect image ...

  • Choi, Jungwook (2015-07-17)
    Many real-world machine learning applications can be considered as inferring the best label assignment of maximum a posteriori probability (MAP) problems. Since these MAP problems are NP-hard in general, they are often ...

  • Chen, Chen (2018-12-06)
    This work investigates image and video restoration problems using effective optimization algorithms. First, we study the problem of single image dehazing to suppress artifacts in compressed or noisy images and videos. Our ...

  • Shetty, Sanketh V. (2011-05-25)
    Given a set of points, the goal of data clustering is to group them into clusters, such that the internal homogeneity of points within each cluster contrasts to inter-cluster heterogeneity. Over the last fifty years, many ...

  • Singh, Abhishek (2015-03-06)
    The single image super-resolution problem entails estimating a high-resolution version of a low-resolution image. Recent studies have shown that high resolution versions of the patches of a given low-resolution image are ...

  • Yang, Qingxiong (2011-01-21)
    In this dissertation, I report the progress towards building a robust and efficient 3D reconstruction system based on stereo vision. Stereo vision is known to be quite fragile in practice due to specular highlights, lack ...

  • Cheng, Hsien Ting (2015-01-21)
    We addressed the fundamental problem of computer vision: segmentation and recognition, in the space-time domain. With the knowledge that generic image segmentation introduces unstable regions due to illumination, com- ...
