Cage Active Contours for image warping and morphing

Cage Active Contours (CACs) have shown to be a framework for segmenting connected objects using a new class of parametric region-based active contours. The CAC approach deforms the contour locally by moving cage’s points through affine transformations. The method has shown good performance for image segmentation, but other applications have not been studied. In this paper, we...

Data-driven system to predict academic grades and dropout

Nowadays, the role of a tutor is more important than ever to prevent students dropout and improve their academic performance. This work proposes a data-driven system to extract relevant information hidden in the student academic data and, thus, help tutors to offer their pupils a more proactive personal guidance. In particular, our system, based on machine learning techniques...

Robust gait-based gender classification using depth cameras

This article presents a new approach for gait-based gender recognition using depth cameras, that can run in real time. The main contribution of this study is a new fast feature extraction strategy that uses the 3D point cloud obtained from the frames in a gait cycle. For each frame, these points are aligned according to their centroid and grouped. After that, they are projected...

A fully-automatic caudate nucleus segmentation of brain MRI: Application in volumetric analysis of pediatric attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder

Background Accurate automatic segmentation of the caudate nucleus in magnetic resonance images (MRI) of the brain is of great interest in the analysis of developmental disorders. Segmentation methods based on a single atlas or on multiple atlases have been shown to suitably localize caudate structure. However, the atlas prior information may not represent the structure of...
