So many students have problem with Detecting and Reading Text in Natural Scenes. Here you wrote the easy way to teach these students. As a teacher i like your way and i must recommend this way to my other teachers. Actually, i try to get thesis writing uk but i got this website very helpful due to its important content.

They seem to have slower speed of detection compared to Viola Jones (that was able to detect faces at 30fps) even though they use less features and the same integral image trick. Why is that??

The features they used still seem similar to Viola Jones features, what is the difference? I did not understand their initial feature set production phase?

Their feature analysis process is interesting. I gather that the decisions about what category of feature to offer the classifiers at each level was largely done by hand. I wonder whether some of that process can be generalized and automated. For example, maybe good combination features can be discovered by examining the shape of their joint histograms to see how bimodal they are.

I didn't understand their modulus of derivative feature, though. What is that?

This is a good application for AdaBoost. However, the paper does not discuss the sensitivity of the algorithm to the input data and parameters. It would be interesting to see some tolerance bounds and the dependence of accuracy on the original signal.

During the training of the strong classifier of the AdaBoost algorithm, the choice of weigths, alpha_t, and weak classifiers, h_t, are obtained by updating the weights, D_t(i). Why is the optimum choice that which minimizes Z_t ( where Z_t is the normalization factor)?

This is interesting. I hope your talk goes deeper into the workings of Adaboost. Also, the authors make the claim that adaboost is the best training algorithm for detecting objects in image scenes. Where has this been investigated. It seems like depending on what features you choose, or how carefully you choose them, different training methods may have unpredictable results in terms of their comparative success.

Does anyone know how this "connected component algorithm" works?
