DIMACS/CCICADA Interdisciplinary Seminar Series Presents
Title: Digital Video Analytics and Intelligent Event Based Surveillance

Speaker: YingLi Tian, The City College, City University of New York

Date: Monday, April 18, 2011 12:00 - 1:00 pm

Location: DIMACS Center, CoRE Bldg, Room 431, Rutgers University                 
             Busch Campus, Piscataway, NJ


Intelligent video surveillance plays an increasingly important role in
many applications. Intelligent surveillance systems use automatic
image understanding techniques to extract information from the
surveillance data. I will introduce the state-of-the-art video
analytics technologies and the challenges in video surveillance. In
addition to real-time monitoring of a scene, intelligent surveillance
systems should have the capability to manage the surveillance data,
perform event based retrieval, receive real time event alerts through
a standard web infrastructure and extract long term statistical
patterns of activity. I will demonstrate several applications
including city surveillance, traffic monitoring, and retail activity

BioSketch Ying-Li Tian is an associate professor in the Department of
Electrical Engineering at the City College of New York since 2008. She
received her PhD from the Department of Electronic Engineering at the
Chinese University of Hong Kong in 1996 and her BS and MS from TianJin
University, China in 1987 and 1990. Her research experience includes
video surveillance, target detection and tracking, event and activity
analysis, scene understanding and facial expression recognition.

She held an associate professor position in the National Laboratory of
Pattern Recognition at the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing,
China, a postdoctoral fellowship at Carnegie Mellon University, and
was a research staff member at IBM T. J. Watson Research Center. She
was one of the inventors of the IBM Smart Surveillance Solutions (SSS)
product and lead the video analytics team. She received several IBM
Invention Achievement Awards, has published over 90 journal and
conference papers and filed about 30 patents.
