Intelligent Video Event Analysis and Understanding

With the vast development of Internet and media technologies, intelligent video event analysis is a gradually growing field of research in recent decades. Significant challenges include how to handle background clutter, occlusions, as well as interactions. Another difficulty is the lacking of widely accepted definition of event in the literature. Though the research achievement is still far from its promise, steady progress has been made in past years. This book collects a set of selected contributions in this area from international experts including leading academic researchers, and industrial practitioners. It presents the latest advances of intelligent video event analysis in both theoretical and application viewpoints.
