Progress Update

I was unable to attend the meeting last Friday, so I met with Dr. Zheng on Thursday. He told me about the progress that Yang has made using DCT. Waiting to see some of the code, maybe read a report on it.

On Wednesday, Yang and I attended a seminar on MATLAB and parallel computing. It was quite interesting, and even as a new user of MATLAB, it wasn't entirely over my head.

Second Meeting

Second Meeting on September 8, 2011

During our meeting, Dr. Zheng said to make sure to understand the DCT paper.  We will be using the DCT procedure to create our program, however, instead of using DCT we will be using the wavelet-based detection.  Later in the project we will also look at colors.

Jacqui and Kaitlyn will start receiving small tasks to begin getting involved in the programming part of the project.

We will be meeting every other Friday.

Progress Update

I have read through the articles "Wavelet-Based Multiresolution Features for Detecting Duplications in Images", "Improved DCT-based detection of copy-move forgery in images", and "A Survey of Copy-Move Forgery Detection Techniques."  I still plan on reading more information based on wavelet detection.

I have also been working on the Matlab tutorial.  I have been working with the interactive interface the most, however, I have started working on simple programs.  While working with the interactive interface I was dealing with matrices, variables, functions, logical operators, the colon notation, and other features.  While working with programs, I worked on for loops, while loops, branching, assignment, and I have started on recursion.

Progress Update

I read the articles last week that Dr. Zheng sent us. The "Wavelet-Based Multiresolution Features for Detecting Duplications in Images" article makes it clear why we need MATLAB for this project.

The other day, I reviewed the code Yang Wang provided for us. Since I am still unfamiliar with MATLAB, I ran a couple of the M files just to see what they would do. After providing an image for one of them, I got it to spit out a couple numbers. Questions pending; I'll go over the code some more this week.

First meeting

First Meeting on August 26, 2011

Dr. Zheng introduced the project and the deadlines in which we need to fulfill. We need to create a website to meet our first deadline in September. We also need to start researching previous work on copy-move forgery detection as well as Matlab.

We plan to attend a technical conference in Las Vegas next April. Jacqui and Kaitlyn will also be attending the  Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing (GHC) conference next year.

The final topic is posting our work weekly on the blog.
