ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||We present an algorithm to detect the attentive behavior of persons with frequent change in focus of attention (FCFA) from a static video camera. This behavior can be easily perceived by people as temporal changes of human head pose. Here, we propose to use features extracted by analyzing a similarity matrix of head pose by using a self-similarity measure of the head image sequence. Further, we present a fast algorithm which uses an image vector sequence represented in the principal components subspace instead of the original image sequence to measure the self-similarity. An important feature of the behavior of FCFA is its cyclic pattern where the head pose repeats its position from time to time. A frequency analysis scheme is proposed to find the dynamic characteristics of persons with frequent change of attention or focused attention. A nonparametric classifier is used to classify these two kinds of behaviors (FCFA and focused attention). The fast algorithm discussed in this paper yields real-time performance as well as good accuracy. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2005.||Source Title:||Lecture Notes in Computer Science||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/70300||ISSN:||03029743|
