Hierarchical Context Modeling for Video Event Recognition

  • Ji Q.
  • Wang X.

Current video event recognition research remains largely target-centered. For real-world surveillance videos, target-centered event recognition faces great challenges due to large intra-class target variation, limited image resolution, and poor detection and tracking results. To mitigate these challenges, we introduced a context-augmented video event recognition approach. Specifically, we explicitly capture different ...

64 x 0.5 Gbaud Nonlinear Frequency Division Multiplexed Transmissions with High Order Modulation Formats

  • Buelow H.

Nonlinear frequency division multiplexing (NFDM) with the modulation of the nonlinear Fourier spectrum (both discrete and continuous parts), have been recently considered as a promising transmission method to combat fiber nonlinearity impairments. In this paper, we experimentally demonstrate the generation, detection and transmission performance of NFDM systems where the transmitted ...

Nonlinear signal multiplexing for communication beyond the Kerr nonlinearity limit

  • Aref V.
  • Buelow H.
  • Thai Le S.

Current optical fibre transmission systems rely on modulation, coding and multiplexing techniques which were originally developed for linear communication channels. However, linear transmission techniques are not fully compatible with a transmission medium with nonlinear optical response such as silica. As a consequence, the Kerr nonlinearity imposes a limit on the ...
