Buxton, Hilary (2003) Learning and understanding dynamic scene activity: a review. Image and Vision Computing, 21 (1). pp. 125-136. ISSN 0262-8856Full text not available from this repository.
We are entering an era of more intelligent cognitive vision systems. Such systems can analyse activity in dynamic scenes to compute conceptual descriptions from motion trajectories of moving people and the objects they interact with. Here we review progress in the development of flexible, generative models that can explain visual input as a combination of hidden variables and can adapt to new types of input. Such models are particularly appropriate for the tasks posed by cognitive vision as they incorporate learning as well as having sufficient structure to represent a general class of problems. In addition, generative models explain all aspects of the input rather than attempting to ignore irrelevant sources of variation as in exemplar-based learning. Applications of these models in visual interaction for education, smart rooms and cars, as well as surveillance systems is also briefly reviewed.
