CrowdAR: augmenting live video with a real-time crowd

CrowdAR: augmenting live video with a real-time crowd
CrowdAR: augmenting live video with a real-time crowd
Finding and tracking targets and events in a live video feed is important for
many commercial applications, from CCTV surveillance used by police and security
firms, to the rapid mapping of events from aerial imagery.
However, descriptions of targets are typically provided in natural language by
the end users, and interpreting these in the context of a live video stream is a
complex task. Due to current limitations in artificial intelligence, especially
vision, this task cannot be automated and instead requires human supervision.
Hence, in this paper, we consider the use of real-time crowdsourcing to identify
and track targets given by a natural language description. In particular we
present a novel method for augmenting live video with a real-time crowd.

Abstract

Finding and tracking targets and events in a live video feed is important for
many commercial applications, from CCTV surveillance used by police and security
firms, to the rapid mapping of events from aerial imagery.
However, descriptions of targets are typically provided in natural language by
the end users, and interpreting these in the context of a live video stream is a
complex task. Due to current limitations in artificial intelligence, especially
vision, this task cannot be automated and instead requires human supervision.
Hence, in this paper, we consider the use of real-time crowdsourcing to identify
and track targets given by a natural language description. In particular we
present a novel method for augmenting live video with a real-time crowd.
