We present a computational approach to abnormal visual event detection, which is based on exploring and modeling local motion patterns in a non-linear subspace. We use motion vectors extracted over a Region of Interest (ROI) as features and a non-linear, graph-based manifold learning algorithm coupled with a supervised novelty classifier to label segments of a video sequence. Given a small sample of annotated normal motion vectors, the non-linear detector ranks segments in a sequence as a

Our choice of feature space compares favorably to the alternatives in terms of classification performance, sensitivity to noise as well as computational complexity.
