Visual Attention-based Object Detection and Recognition
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
This thesis is all about the visual attention, starting from understanding the human visual system up till applying this mechanism to a real-world computer vision application. This has been achieved by taking the advantage of latest findings about the human visual attention and the increased performance of the computers. These two facts played a vital role in simulating the many different aspects of this visual behavior. In addition, the concept of bio-inspired visual attention systems have become applicable due to the emergence of different interdisciplinary approaches to vision which leads to a beneficial interaction between the scientists related to different fields. The problems of high complexities in computer vision lead to consider the visual attention paradigm to become a part of real time computer vision solutions which have increasing demand.
In this thesis work, different aspects of visual attention paradigm have been dealt ranging from the biological modeling to the real-world computer vision tasks implementation based on this visual behavior. The implementation of traffic signs detection and recognition system benefited from this mechanism is the central part of this thesis work.
