Dancer Identification and Pedestrian Remover

Computer vision students at UC San Diego who took Serge Belongie's CSE 190-A class set up blogs to show off their final projects during the winter quarter...including a pedestrian remover and a dancer detector. (Dancer detector videos embedded above and below.)

The pedestrian remover project turned into a paper presented at IEEE International Workshop on Mobile Vision. The dancer detector project has cool movies: "Dancer Identification within Shot Boundaries". The final report for the dancer detector is here (PDF). The UC San Diego students who did the dancer detector work are: Kedar Reddy, Nevin Gaudreau and Nishanth Satyanarayana.

Embedded below is another one of the videos from the dancer identification project. Check out more videos, images and information on the dancer identification blog.
