Computer Vision Using Local Binary Patterns by Matti Pietikäinen

By Matti Pietikäinen

The contemporary emergence of neighborhood Binary styles (LBP) has resulted in major growth in utilizing texture how to a variety of computing device imaginative and prescient difficulties and purposes. the point of interest of this learn has broadened from 2nd textures to 3D textures and spatiotemporal (dynamic) textures. additionally, the place texture used to be applied for purposes equivalent to distant sensing, commercial inspection and biomedical photograph research, the advent of LBP-based methods have supplied awesome leads to difficulties when it comes to face and job research, with destiny scope for face and facial features attractiveness, biometrics, visible surveillance and video analysis.

Computer imaginative and prescient utilizing neighborhood Binary Patterns offers an in depth description of the LBP tools and their versions either in spatial and spatiotemporal domain names. This entire reference additionally presents a very good review as to how texture tools can be used for fixing other forms of computing device imaginative and prescient and photo research difficulties. resource codes of the fundamental LBP algorithms, demonstrations, a few databases and a finished LBP bibliography are available from an accompanying net site.

Topics include:

- neighborhood binary styles and their variations in spatial and spatiotemporal domains
- Texture type and segmentation, description of curiosity regions
- functions in photo retrieval and 3D recognition
- popularity and segmentation of dynamic textures
- historical past subtraction, popularity of actions
- Face research utilizing nonetheless photos and snapshot sequences, visible speech recognition
- LBP in a number of applications

Written by way of pioneers of LBP, this publication is a necessary source for researchers, specialist engineers and graduate scholars in laptop imaginative and prescient, photograph research and development acceptance. The e-book may also be of curiosity to all those that paintings with particular functions of laptop vision.
