Visual Text Features for Image Matching
Found in: 2012 IEEE International Symposium on Multimedia (ISM)
By Sam S. Tsai,Huizhong Chen,David Chen,Vasu Parameswaran,Radek Grzeszczuk,Bernd Girod
Issue Date:December 2012
pp. 408-412
We present a new class of visual text features that are based on text in camera phone images. A robust text detection algorithm locates individual text lines and feeds them to a recognition engine. From the recognized characters, we generate the visual tex...
 
The Hidden Sides of Names—Face Modeling with First Name Attributes
Found in: IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence
By Huizhong Chen,Andrew C. Gallagher,Bernd Girod
Issue Date:September 2014
pp. 1860-1873
This paper introduces the new idea of describing people using first names. We show that describing people in terms of similarity to a vector of possible first names is a powerful representation of facial appearance that can be used for a number of importan...
 
What's in a Name? First Names as Facial Attributes
Found in: 2013 IEEE Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR)
By Huizhong Chen,Andrew C. Gallagher,Bernd Girod
Issue Date:June 2013
pp. 3366-3373
This paper introduces a new idea in describing people using their first names, i.e., the name assigned at birth. We show that describing people in terms of similarity to a vector of possible first names is a powerful description of facial appearance that c...

Combining image and text features: a hybrid approach to mobile book spine recognition
Found in: Proceedings of the 19th ACM international conference on Multimedia (MM '11)
By Bernd Girod, Cheng-Hsin Hsu, David Chen, Huizhong Chen, Jatinder P. Singh, Kyu-Han Kim, Sam S. Tsai
Issue Date:November 2011
pp. 1029-1032
Despite the successful use of local image features for large-scale object recognition, they are not effective in recognizing book spines on bookshelves. This is because some book spines contain only text components that do not yield distinguishing image fe...
