A Novel Approach for Video Inpainting Using Autoencoders

Inpainting is a task undertaken to fill in damaged or missing parts of an image or video frame, with believable content. The aim of this operation is to realistically complete images or frames of videos for a variety of applications such as conservation and restoration of art, editing images and videos for aesthetic purposes, but might cause malpractices such as evidence tampering. From the image and video editing perspective, inpainting is used mainly in the context of generating content to fill the gaps left after removing a particular object from the image or the video. Video Inpainting, an extension of Image Inpainting, is a much more challenging task due to the constraint added by the time dimension. Several techniques do exist that achieve the task of removing an object from a given video, but they are still in a nascent stage. The major objective of this paper is to study the available approaches of inpainting and propose a solution to the limitations of existing inpainting techniques. After studying existing inpainting techniques, we realized that most of them make use of a ground truth frame to generate plausible results. A 'ground truth' frame is an image without the target object or in other words, an image that provides maximum information about the background, which is then used to fill spaces after object removal. In this paper, we propose an approach where there is no requirement of a 'ground truth' frame, provided that the video has enough contexts available about the background that is to be recreated. We would be using frames from the video in hand, to gather context for the background. As the position of the target object to be removed will vary from one frame to the next, each subsequent frame will reveal the region that was initially behind the object, and provide more information about the background as a whole. Later, we have also discussed the potential limitations of our approach and some workarounds for the same, while showing the direction for further research.

Blockchain Based Secure Traffic Police Assistant System

There are large numbers of vehicles in the populated country like India. It’s a very common scenario that traffic police came across some vehicle random vehicle and had some doubt in mind but do not have in hand information about that vehicle and end up leaving that thought. Sometimes this may result in some disaster. With the advent of technology, there are mobile applications and web based systems are available to ease up the process by which traffic police can fine the vehicle owner or people can pay the fine online. But yet there is no system is available through which traffic police can get all the details about the particular vehicle. This motivated us to design and developed an application thorough which traffic police can get all the information right from owner of the vehicle to its RC book and insurance status on just one click. Looking at the chances of data tampering, we have also played an attention to the data security and used blockchain for creating distributed, robust and tempered proof system. In this paper we have discussed traffic police assistance system, which can scan the vehicle number plate, identify the number and provide the all the information and documents stored against that vehicle number. To address the issue of data security and alteration of sensitive data blockchain is used so that any alteration can be monitored. As the complete information process is dependent on how correctly the vehicle number is identified, so the number plate recognition module is tested thoroughly under various conditions. Finally user feedback is taken and analyzed to evaluate the feasibility and usability of the proposed application.

Cuisine Detection Using the Convolutional Neural Network

By Dipti Pawade Ashwini Dalvi Irfan Siddavatam Myron Carvalho Prajwal Kotian Hima George

In today’s fast world, everyone wants the information in one click. The same rule applies when you have some food items in front of you. In social events, few cuisines are known to us while some are not. Also, in a few cases, we know the cuisine name, but we are not aware of its nutritional value. This motivated us to develop a system that can identify the cuisine name from the image and gives the nutrient value for the same. Here Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) is used to predict the cuisine name present in an image and then further its nutritional value is calculated based on the information present in a database. User needs to click the image of the cuisine; the application will identify the cuisine name and its nutrition value for standard serving amount considering the cuisine is prepared using the standard recipe.

Story Scrambler - Automatic Text Generation Using Word Level RNN-LSTM

With the advent of artificial intelligence, the way technology can assist humans is completely revived. Ranging from finance and medicine to music, gaming, and various other domains, it has slowly become an intricate part of our lives. A neural network, a computer system modeled on the human brain, is one of the methods of implementing artificial intelligence. In this paper, we have implemented a recurrent neural network methodology based text generation system called Story Scrambler. Our system aims to generate a new story based on a series of inputted stories.  For new story generation, we have considered two possibilities with respect to nature of inputted stories. Firstly, we have considered the stories with different storyline and characters. Secondly, we have worked with different volumes of the same stories where the storyline is in context with each other and characters are also similar. Results generated by the system are analyzed based on parameters like grammar correctness, linkage of events, interest level and uniqueness.

Distributed Ledger Management for an Organization using Blockchains

By Dipti Pawade Sagar Jape Rahul Balasubramanian Mihir Kulkarni Avani Sakhapara

DOI: https://doi.org/10.5815/ijeme.2018.03.01, Pub. Date: 8 May 2018

In the financial systems of the modern era, trust has always been a missing entity; concentrations of power and trust have given birth to numerous breakdowns. To resolve the problems at this end, the paper attempts for a solution using Blockchains, a data structure that allows for the creation of cryptically secured distributed tamperproof ledgers. The paper discusses the data structure and further disserts on the case study in consideration.

Augmented Reality Based Campus Guide Application Using Feature Points Object Detection

These days though GPS is a very common navigation system, still using GPS for everybody is not possible due to the lack of technological awareness. So people follow the traditional method of asking location to the local people around. After taking external guidance, even if one reaches the destination place, one is not able to understand the significance of that place. In this paper, we have discussed an implementation of a Mobile Augmented Reality based application called “ARCampusGo". With this application, one has to just scan the structure/monument to view the details about it. Along with it, this application also provides the names of nearby structure/monuments. One can select any of them and then the route to the selected monument/structure from the current location is rendered. This application renders rich, easy and interactive visual experience to the user. The performance and usability of “ARCampusGo" are evaluated during different daytime and nighttime with the different number of users. The user experience and feedback are considered for performance measurement and enhancement.
