  • Digital Video Concepts, Methods and Metrics

    Digital Video Concepts, Methods and Metrics Cover

    Shahriar Akramullah

    Digital Video Concepts, Methods and Metrics: Quality, Compression, Performance and Power Trade-off Analysis is a concise reference for professionals in a wide range of applications and vocations. It teaches the reader to choose and tune coding parameters for optimum results that would suit their particular need for quality, compression, speed and power.


  • Computer Vision Metrics

    Computer Vision Metrics Cover

    Scott Krig

    Computer Vision Metrics provides an extensive survey and analysis of current and historical feature description and machine vision methods, with a detailed taxonomy for local, regional and global features. The survey is broader than it is deep, with over 540 references provided to dig deeper. The taxonomy includes search methods, spectra components, descriptor representation, shape, distance functions, accuracy, efficiency, robustness and invariance attributes, and more. This book provides necessary background to develop intuition about why interest point detectors and feature descriptors actually work, how they are designed, and observations about tuning the methods for achieving robustness and invariance targets for specific applications. This is not another ‘how-to’ book with source code examples and shortcuts, but rather provides a counterpoint to the many fine opencv community source code resources currently available for hands-on practitioners.


  • Building the Infrastructure for Cloud Security

    Building the Infrastructure for Cloud Security Cover

    Raghuram Yeluri, Enrique Castro-Leon
