  • 2-DOM: A 2-Dimensional Object Model towards Web Image Annotation

    Publication Year: 2008, Page(s):3 - 8

    The automatic annotation of images is still a non-reliable process due to the well-known semantic gap dominating between the physical representation of images and their high level semantics. To avoid the confrontation with the semantic gap several approaches restrict the image dataset to web images. Web images mostly appear on websites with other text contents which can deliver important informati... View full abstract»

  • Towards an Authoring Tool for Personalizable Multimedia Content

    Publication Year: 2008, Page(s):9 - 14
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (230 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this paper, we focus on the problems of multimedia content personalization. We propose a new method/tool for authoring personalizable multimedia content. In other terms, our approach aims at helping the author (or the service provider) to generate a personalization process for an multimedia content which will be executed during the delivery of the scene. The elementary operations of this proces... View full abstract»

  • A Relation-Based Contextual Approach for Efficient Multimedia Analysis

    Publication Year: 2008, Page(s):15 - 20
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (347 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this paper we present our research work on the identification of high-level concepts within multimedia documents through the introduction and utilization of contextual relations. A conceptual ontology is introduced, as the means of exploiting the visual context of images, in terms of high-level concepts and region types they consist of. A meaningful combination of these features results in a co... View full abstract»

  • Semantic Video Analysis Based on Estimation and Representation of Higher-Order Motion Statistics

    Publication Year: 2008, Page(s):21 - 26
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (706 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this paper, a generic motion-based approach to semantic video analysis is presented. The examined video is initially segmented into shots and for every resulting shot appropriate motion features are extracted at fixed time intervals. Then, hidden Markov models (HMMs) are employed for performing the association of each shot with one of the semantic classes that are of interest in any given domai... View full abstract»

    Behavior understanding and semantic interpretation of dynamic visual scenes have attracted a lot of attention in computer vision research community. Although the use of surveillance cameras has proliferated, the understanding of activities still remains complex. While users are mostly interested in high level and subjective semantics, only low level visual features can be extracted in a reliable w... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a methodology for object recognition. It relies on the extraction of distinctive invariant image features that can be used to find the correspondence between different views of an object or a scene. These features are invariant to image rotation and scaling, they have substantial robustness to changes in viewpoint and illumination and addition of noise. Mikolajczyk [1] have eva...

    Public transportation passengers are extensively using Internet to make their lives simpler. In order to minimize the time spent at the bus stop, they use to check their bus line departures on the Web before they leave their homes or offices. For this purpose, there exist several Internet portals providing information on local transportation time schedules. This paper presents another way (quicker... View full abstract»

  • Customizing Local Context Analysis for Farsi Information Retrieval by Using a New Concept Weighting Algorithm

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (167 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    A lot of digital Farsi content has been produced recently in middle-east. Local context analysis (LCA) is an automated query expansion method that adds concepts to the original query based on the initial retrieval using the original query. In our previous works we attempted to tune this method for Farsi language by manipulating three parameters which are number of concepts used for query expansion... View full abstract»

  • Use of Semantic Enhancements to NLP of Image Captions to Aid Image Retrieval

    This paper proposes a semantic-based create and search technique to enhance visual information retrieval. Our approach includes an ontology-based scheme for the semi-automatic annotation for image retrieval. Latent Semantic Indexing (LSI) is used in order to solve the Natural Language (NL) vagueness problem and to tolerate ontology imperfections. In addition, our framework is able to find indirect...

    Map applications based upon geospatial information systems (GIS) are seen as key applications for mobile users, e.g., to enable various assets to be located and tracked, with respect to destinations and routes. However, current GIS map applications for mobile users tend to lack support for personalisation, to enable users to set preferences to select content, and to mark up a map, in-situ, e.g., t...

    This paper presents the design and implementation of an MPEG-7 based Multimedia Retrieval System for Film Heritage. The multimedia content has been indexed using an Annotation Tool based on MPEG-7 standard. Moreover, an MPEG-7 Compliant Ontology in OWL DL, which is briefly explained in this paper, has been specially developed to fulfil the requirements of the CINeSPACE project. This ontology has b...

    Detection of semantic events in sports videos is an essential step towards video summarization. A large volume of research has been conducted for automatic semantic event detection and summarization of sports videos. In this paper we present a novel sports video summarization framework using a combination of text, video and logic analysis. Parse trees are used to analyze structured and free-style ...

    Characteristics in the user model can be acquired and maintained in several ways, namely by means of implicit or explicit feedback, observation of user's actions, log analysis, etc. We use analysis of the content that is presented to a user. We assume that comparing documents and analyzing their common and different aspects can lead to information about user's interests. We work in the Semantic We... View full abstract»

    The ability to estimate semantic similarity between entities in a meaningful way suiting the needs of a specific application is crucial for the success of any information system build using ontologies. As a result, ontology reutilization to this day has been limited, with most systems being accompanied by ontologies perfectly customized for the system's needs. In this work, we define "ontology app... View full abstract»

    Context-awareness is a key issue for future applications within heterogeneous and networked environments. In terms of efficiency and reusability, such applications should be separated from the problems of context gathering and modeling, but should instead profit from and contribute to cross-application context information. For this purpose, an ontology-based, cross-application context modeling and... View full abstract»

    We present here a recommending system that has been developed for filtering TV content provided to mobile devices users. This recommender is fully based on ontologies, which are used to formalize both the user and her/his interests, and the audiovisual content. The developed ontologies allow matchmaking between user and content at different levels, based on three means to define user interests: ac... View full abstract»
