Dr. Mehul Raval were awarded a research grant by the Board of Research in Nuclear Science (BNRS), Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, Department of Atomic Energy (DAE), Government of India. The details of the project are as follows:

Title: Description based person identification in unconstrained surveillance video (2016 - 2019)

PI: Dr. Mehul S Raval

Co-PI : Dr Sanjay Chaudhary

Project Collaborator (PC) : Anand Laddha, Scientific Officer, BARC, Trombay

Project Duration: 3 years

Funding Organisation:   Board of Research in Nuclear Science (BNRS), Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, Department of Atomic Energy, Government of India

Funding Amount: 20.92 Lakhs

Summary: The goal of the project is to locate a person-of-interest based on specific set of soft biometric attributes from a surveillance video without prior registration. The project will integrate and minimize semantic gap between han input image or a video frame and then uses these features to locate a matching individual in the video streamuman descriptions and soft biometric traits. Moreover it aims at extracting soft biometric features from an input image or a video frame and then uses these features to locate a matching individual in the video stream. This project will add another dimension to surveillance as human cognitive perceptions are used while searching the video streams.
