Learning from small and imbalanced dataset of images using generative adversarial neural networks. (2019)
Thesis
ALI-GOMBE, A. 2019. Learning from small and imbalanced dataset of images using generative adversarial neural networks. Robert Gordon University [online], PhD thesis. Available from: https://openair.rgu.ac.uk

The performance of deep learning models is unmatched by any other approach in supervised computer vision tasks such as image classification. However, training these models requires a lot of labeled data, which are not always available. Labelling a ma...

Beyond the pixels: learning and utilising video compression features for localisation of digital tampering. (2019)
Thesis
JOHNSTON, P. 2019. Beyond the pixels: learning and utilising video compression features for localisation of digital tampering. Robert Gordon University [online], PhD thesis. Available from: https://openair.rgu.ac.uk

Video compression is pervasive in digital society. With rising usage of deep convolutional neural networks (CNNs) in the fields of computer vision, video analysis and video tampering detection, it is important to investigate how patterns invisible to...

On pruning and feature engineering in Random Forests. (2016)
Thesis
FAWAGREH, K. 2016. On pruning and feature engineering in Random Forests. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

Random Forest (RF) is an ensemble classification technique that was developed by Leo Breiman over a decade ago. Compared with other ensemble techniques, it has proved its accuracy and superiority. Many researchers, however, believe that there is stil... Read More about On pruning and feature engineering in Random Forests..

Content based video retrieval via spatial-temporal information discovery. (2013)
Thesis
WANG, L. 2013. Content based video retrieval via spatial-temporal information discovery. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

Content based video retrieval (CBVR) has been strongly motivated by a variety of realworld applications. Most state-of-the-art CBVR systems are built based on Bag-of-visual- Words (BovW) framework for visual resources representation and access. The f...
