HPC is a foundation uniting 51 interdisciplinary public and private organizations, driving substantial and sustainable innovations across various fields, from basic research to computational and experimental sciences, supporting education, and advocating responsible data management for open science.
Assisted living technologies can be of great importance for taking care of elderly people and helping them to live independently. We propose a monitoring system designed to be as unobtrusive as possible, by exploiting computer vision techniques and visual sensors such as RGB cameras.
Very large databases of images and videos depend on efficient algorithms to enable fast browsing and access to the information pursued.
In this project we shall consider the problem of deploying attention to subsets of the video streams for collating the most relevant data and information of interest related to a given task. We formalize this monitoring problem as a foraging problem.
We have developed the iVAT: an interactive Video Annotation Tool. It supports manual, semi-automatic and automatic annotations through the interaction of the user with various detection algorithms.
