Prof. Ganesh Ramakrishnan

Video Analytics

Video Analytics softwares for security applications includes real-time analysis such as intrusion, loitering, tracking (SurakshaVyuha)
and post-mortem analysis - video search (Jigyasa), summarization (VideoSummy and VISIOCITY). These are ongoing projects, initiated by Prof. Ganesh Ramakrishnan in 2016, which got incorporated in 2017 as a part of the National Centre of Excellence in Technology for Internal Security (NCETIS). NCETIS has been strongly facilitating as well as promoting the work to the Indian Navy, Indian Army and Several state police forces. We also feature below video analytics for compliance and quality monitoring (Drishti), a work with the Ministry of Rural Development, Government of India

Surakshavyuha

Video Surveillance Analytics

This work on CCTV Video Analytics includes real-time intrusion detection, perimeter monitoring, loitering detection, object tracking, etc.

Videosummy

and

Visiocity Summarization Benchmark

Video Summarization Software

Videosummy can condense hours’ worth of video into a couple of minutes, by preserving key events and vignettes from your original video and removing repetitive visual information. Read in details, our VISIOCITY dataset and benchmark algorithms and evaluations for video summarization across different domains such as surveillance, TV shows, sports, education, events (birthdays and weddings), and different facets of summarization therein.

Drishti

Compliance and Quality Monitoring

Drishti is an ongoing project with the Ministry of Rural Development (MoRD), Government of India to provide automated compliance and quality monitoring solution for their DDU-GKY skill development scheme (Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Gramina Kaushalya Yojana). It supports analytics like instructor face recognition, student count, uniform compliance, punctuality detection etc. on classroom videos.

Document Analytics

Optical Character Recognition (OCR) and Scene text Recognition for Indian languages and Indian context

IndicOCR

Optical Character Recognition for Indian Texts

End-to-end framework for Error Detection and Corrections in Indic-OCR. The system inputs a PDF file of a book, and obtains the OCR output using IndSenz OCR and Google OCR, and then corrects the OCRed text, and provides suggestions for words that probably have mistakes during the OCR method, hence any mistakes during the OCR process can be corrected by the user.
