Identification and Classification of Adenovirus Particles in Digital Microscopic Images using Active Contours

By Manjunatha Hiremath

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Jun. 2014

Medical imaging is the technique and process used to create images of the human body or medical science. Digital image processing is the use of computer algorithms to perform image processing on digital images. Microscope image processing dates back a half century when it was realized that some of the techniques of image capture and manipulation, first developed for television, could also be applied to images captured through the microscope. This paper presents semi-automated segmentation and identification of adenovirus particles using active contour with multi grid segmentation model. The geometric features are employed to identify the adenovirus particles in digital microscopic image. The min-max, 3 rules are used for recognition of adenovirus particles. The results are compared with manual method obtained by microbiologist.

3D Face Recognition based on Radon Transform, PCA, LDA using KNN and SVM

Biometrics (or biometric authentication) refers to the identification of humans by their characteristics or traits. Bio-metrics is used in computer science as a form of identification and access control. It is also used to identify individuals in groups that are under surveillance. Biometric identifiers are the distinctive, measurable characteristics used to label and describe individuals. Three dimensional (3D) human face recognition is emerging as a significant biometric technology. Research interest into 3D face recognition has increased during recent years due to the availability of improved 3D acquisition devices and processing algorithms. Three dimensional face recognition also helps to resolve some of the issues associated with two dimensional (2D) face recognition. In the previous research works, there are several methods for face recognition using range images that are limited to the data acquisition and pre-processing stage only. In the present paper, we have proposed a 3D face recognition algorithm which is based on Radon transform, Principal Component Analysis (PCA) and Linear Discriminant Analysis (LDA). The Radon transform (RT) is a fundamental tool to normalize 3D range data. The PCA is used to reduce the dimensionality of feature space, and the LDA is used to optimize the features, which are finally used to recognize the faces. The experimentation has been done using three publicly available databases, namely, Bhosphorus, Texas and CASIA 3D face databases. The experimental results are shown that the proposed algorithm is efficient in terms of accuracy and detection time, in comparison with other methods based on PCA only and RT+PCA. It is observed that 40 Eigen faces of PCA and 5 LDA components lead to an average recognition rate of 99.20% using SVM classifier.

Depth and Intensity Gabor Features Based 3D Face Recognition Using Symbolic LDA and AdaBoost

By P. S. Hiremath Manjunatha Hiremath

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Nov. 2013

In this paper, the objective is to investigate what contributions depth and intensity information make to the solution of face recognition problem when expression and pose variations are taken into account, and a novel system is proposed for combining depth and intensity information in order to improve face recognition performance. In the proposed approach, local features based on Gabor wavelets are extracted from depth and intensity images, which are obtained from 3D data after fine alignment. Then a novel hierarchical selecting scheme embedded in symbolic linear discriminant analysis (Symbolic LDA) with AdaBoost learning is proposed to select the most effective and robust features and to construct a strong classifier. Experiments are performed on the three datasets, namely, Texas 3D face database, Bhosphorus 3D face database and CASIA 3D face database, which contain face images with complex variations, including expressions, poses and longtime lapses between two scans. The experimental results demonstrate the enhanced effectiveness in the performance of the proposed method. Since most of the design processes are performed automatically, the proposed approach leads to a potential prototype design of an automatic face recognition system based on the combination of the depth and intensity information in face images.
