This thesis brings together productivity and risk assessments through innovative design, development and evaluation of a unique system for retrieving and analysing data. In the past, although the link between them is well-documented, these assessments have largely been dealt with as separate antagonist entities. A broad evaluation of the existing traditional and technological support systems […]

In this work, we describe an application of convolutional networks to object classification and detection in images. The task of image based object recognition is surveyed in the first chapter. Its application in internet advertisement is one of the main motivations of this work. The architecture of the convolutional networks is described in details in […]

Hidden Semi-Markov Models (HSMMs) are powerful generalizations of Hidden Markov Models that have been effectively employed in tasks such as machine translation and optical character recognition. A principal computational bottleneck on these systems as applied to optical character recognition [5] is the need to compute emission probabilities for a large number of possible model states. […]

Iris recognition is quite a computation intensive task with huge amounts of pixel processing. After the image acquisition of the eye, Iris recognition is basically divided into Iris localization, Feature Extraction and Matching steps. Each of these tasks involves a lot of processing. It thus becomes essential to improve the performance of each step to […]

Nowadays, similarity search is becoming a field of increasing interest because these kinds of methods can be applied to different areas in computer science and engineering, such as voice and image recognition, text retrieval, and many others. However, when processing large volumes of data, query response time can be quite high. In this case, it […]

Image recognition and classification is one of the primary challenges of the machine learning community. Recent advances in learning systems, coupled with hardware developments have enabled general object recognition systems to be learned on home computers with graphics processing units. Presented is a Deep Belief Network engineered using NVIDIA’s CUDA programming language for general object […]

In this paper, we present a GPU accelerated face recognition framework using CUDA. We use weighted regional LBP histograms as features and k-nearest neighbour (k-NN) algorithm for classification. Our first contribution is to present an efficient way to compute LBP values from an input image and construct weighted regional LBP histograms in GPU using a […]

This paper presents the GPU mapping of the recognition algorithm of a Convolution Neural Network (CNN). This work is based on a C-implementation of the application. The mapping to GPU was performed through different approaches which are explained in detail. The improvements achieved by each approach are presented as well as the overall speed up […]

Image recognition systems require large image data sets for the training process. The annotation of such data sets through users requires a lot of time and effort, and thereby presents the bottleneck in the development of recognition systems. In order to simplify the creation of image recognition systems it is necessary to develop interaction concepts […]

From the desire to update the maximum road speed data for navigation devices, a speed sign recognition and detection system is proposed. This system should prevent accidental speeding at roads where the map data is incorrect for example due to construction work. Multiple examples of road sign classification systems already exist but none uses a […]
