There is a growing interest in computational approaches permitting accurate detection of nonverbal signs of depression and related symptoms (i.e., anxiety and distress) that may serve as minimally intrusive means of monitoring illness progression. The aim of the present work was to develop a methodology for detecting such signs and to evaluate its generalizability and clinical specificity for detecting

Multi-view triangulation is an essential step in recovering three-dimensional structure from a set of images. It is a well-studied problem in computer vision with many suboptimal and optimal methods based on different optimality criteria. In this paper, we assess the ability of evolutionary computation (EC) methods in finding highly accurate solutions to this problem. We use an overlaying Luus–Jaakola

Traditional level set-based image segmentation method has to solve the level set evolution equation which is the Euler–Lagrange equation of the energy functional defined on the image domain. Solving level set evolution equation is very time-consuming, and reinitialization is usually needed. The level set evolution equation can also be solved by mathematical morphology. The morphological implementation

In this paper, we propose a method to select parameter values for stereo matching methods. The proposed method was trained in a supervised manner, and an evolutionary algorithm is used to select optimized parameter values for a given domain and a cost function constructed to measure the goodness level of candidate parameter values. Performance of the proposed method is compared to that of five current
