In this book, the focus is on visual event computing. The events come from video and images. An introduction is presented on what an event is, then an introduction is presented on detecting events from videos and images. Furthermore, event search, retrieval, mining, and reasoning is examined and discussed. As an example, how to use visual event computing in a surveillance environment is proposed. The related software system is also presented.
