Description

Abstract: Discovery and recognition of group activities based on imagery data processing have significant applications in civilian and military domains. The process is typically involved with tedious trail analysis of video imagery with spatiotemporal implications. Discretion of video imagery requires a proper inference model capable of discriminating and differentiating cohesive observations and interlinking them to known ontologies. To address this concern, effective machine learning techniques needs to be developed and tested for better results. During this summer, we will develop a machine learning toolbox with graphical user interface including necessary machine learning algorithms and image processing techniques. Requirements: Student should be very good in python programming and an aptitude to learn image processing and machine learning techniques. Duties to be performed: Student will be involved in performing a literature review to gather the current achievements in the given research topic. Student will be involved in developing GUI and machine learning techniques for Activity detection and recognition.
