Abnormal event detection and localization in surveillance videos

The main objective of this system is to detect and localize unusual objects, suspicious behaviors or irregular events in a scene. The proposed method should detects anomalous regions in a video and it is fast enough for real-time applications. It codes video as a compact set of spatio-temporal video volumes while considering uncertainties in the grouping process and their spatio-temporal arrangements using a probabilistic framework to calculate the likelihood of the regions in the video.
