One of the main ingredients to learn a visual representation of an object using the Convolutional Neural Networks is a large and carefully annotated dataset. Acquiring a dataset in a demanded scale is not a straightforward task; therefore, the community attempts to solve this problem by creating noisy datasets gathered from web sources. In this paper, this issue is tackled by designing a vehicle recognition system using Convolutional Neural Networks and noisy web data. In the proposed system, the transfer learning technique is employed, and behavior of several deep architectures trained on a noisy dataset are studied. In addition, the external noise of the gathered dataset is reduced by exploiting an unsupervised method called Isolation Forest, and the new training results are examined. Based on the experiments, high recognition accuracies were achieved by training two states of the art networks on the noisy dataset, and the obtained results were slightly improved by using the proposed noise reduction framework. Finally, a demonstration application is provided to show the capability and the performance of the proposed approach. © 2018 Elsevier Ltd

Double compression detection is a crucial stage in digital image and video forensics. However, the detection of double compressed videos is challenging when the video forger uses the same quantization matrix and synchronized group of pictures (GOP) structure during the recompression history to conceal tampering effects. A passive approach is proposed for detecting double compressed MPEG videos with the same quantization matrix and synchronized GOP structure. To devise the proposed algorithm, the effects of recompression on P frames are mathematically studied. Then, based on the obtained guidelines, a feature vector is proposed to detect double compressed frames on the GOP level. Subsequently, sparse representations of the feature vectors are used for dimensionality reduction and enrich the traces of recompression. Finally, a support vector machine classifier is employed to detect and localize double compression in temporal domain. The experimental results show that the proposed algorithm achieves the accuracy of more than 95%. In addition, the comparisons of the results of the proposed method with those of other methods reveal the efficiency of the proposed algorithm. © 2018 SPIE and IS&T.
