Robust features for facial action recognition [article]

Nadav Israel, Lior Wolf, Ran Barzilay, Gal Shoval
2017 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper, we present an automated system that recognizes facial gestures by capturing local changes and encoding the motion into a histogram of frequencies.  ...  The results show that, compared to known methods, the new encoding methods significantly improve the recognition accuracy and the robustness of analysis for a variety of applications.  ...  For this purpose, both narrowing the number of facial actions of interest and paying attention to the video context may be critical to the success of an automated system.  ...

Wavelet-based holistic sequence descriptor for generating video summaries

A. Graves, S. Gong
2004 Procedings of the British Machine Vision Conference 2004  
Such a representation is critical for action based genres such as surveillance. We show that an analysis of the trajectory shape is able to produce a temporal segmentation.  ...  We propose a video representation, the Video Scene Trajectory, computed from localised temporal-change in order to capture the holistic action content in a sequence.  ...  We monitor holistic action in the video over long periods and hence perform topic spotting in video (without knowledge of the topics).  ...
