It was estimated that 80% of the information received by human is visual. Image processing is evolving fast and continually. During the past 10 years, there has been a significant research increase in image segmentation. To study a specific object in an image, its boundary can be highlighted by an image segmentation procedure. The objective of the image segmentation is to simplify the representation of pictures into meaningful information by partitioning into image regions. Image segmentation is a technique to locate certain objects or boundaries within an image....

The purpose of this book, entitled Face Analysis, Modeling and Recognition Systems is to provide a concise and comprehensive coverage of artificial face recognition domain across four major areas of interest: biometrics, robotics, image databases and cognitive models. Our book aims to provide the reader with current state-of-the-art in these domains. The book is composed of 12 chapters which are grouped in four sections.
Object tracking consists in estimation of trajectory of moving objects in the sequence of images. Automation of the computer object tracking is a difficult task. Dynamics of multiple parameters changes representing features and motion of the objects, and temporary partial or full occlusion of the tracked objects have to be considered. This monograph presents the development of object tracking algorithms, methods and systems.
[ Team LiB ] Recipe 2.19 Replacing Null Values in a Strongly Typed DataSet Problem When a column in a database has a null value, you want the value in the DataSet to be a string indicating that no value is available. Solution Use annotations in the XML schema to control the handling of null values.

MyLifeBits has at its heart a SQL Server database that can store content and metadata for a variety of
types, including contacts, documents, email, events, photos, songs, and video. Figure 2 illustrates the
MyLifeBits schema. All captured entities that are exposed to the user are called “Items.” Each item has
about 20 common attributes, registered in the _Items table. Items are of one or more types: the _Item-
ItemSubtype table indicates the specific the type(s) of each item. _ItemSubTypes enumerates the valid
