    Sound agents is an art installation relating real space and virtual sound space. It follows previous work on virtual agents and autonomous characters in 3D immersive spaces. However in sound agents, each virtual entity will not be a visual character but an invisible sound agent producing music, which will have its own autonomous behavior. Therefore the ambient music is dynamically spatialized in t... View full abstract»

  • Bowed String Sequence Estimation of a Violin Based on Adaptive Audio Signal Classification and Context-Dependent Error Correction

    The sequence of strings played on a bowed string instrument is essential to understanding of the fingering. Thus, its estimation is required for machine understanding of violin playing. Audio-based identification is the only viable way to realize this goal for existing music recordings. A naive implementation using audio classification alone, however, is inaccurate and is not robust against variat... View full abstract»

    Bit-plane probability of data is a useful characteristic for many applications, such as entropy coding. Its value may vary according to the distribution of the data. In this paper, the bit-plane probability of data with generalized Gaussian distribution is analyzed. By studying the statistical characteristics of the sources and the bit-plane probability for Laplacian distribution, an approximated ... View full abstract»

  • A Low-Complexity Dynamic Face-Voice Feature Fusion Approach to Multimodal Person Recognition

    In this paper, we show the importance of face-voice correlation for audio-visual person recognition. We evaluate the performance of a system which uses the correlation between audio-visual features during speech against audio-only, video-only and audio-visual systems which use audio and visual features independently neglecting the interdependency of a person's spoken utterance and the associated f...

  • Audio Clips Retrieval Using Anchor Reference Space and Latent Semantic Analysis

    Publication Year: 2009, Page(s):32 - 37
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (336 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This paper describes a technique for audio clips retrieval. The audio clips are modeled using a common universal codebook. The codebook is based on a bag-of-features (BOF). The features extracted from all clips are grouped into clusters using the k-means algorithm. The individual audio clips are modeled by the normalized distribution of the numbers of cluster bins. The latent semantic indexing (LS... View full abstract»

  • Speaker Detection and Applications to Cross-Modal Analysis of Planning Meetings

    Detection of meeting events is one of the most important tasks in multimodal analysis of planning meetings. Speaker detection is a key step for extraction of most meaningful meeting events. In this paper, we present an approach of speaker localization using combination of visual and audio information in multimodal meeting analysis. When talking, people make a speech accompanying mouth movements an... View full abstract»

  • Object Categorization Using Hierarchical Wavelet Packet Texture Descriptors

    Object categorization plays an important role in computer vision, semantic based image content understanding, and image retrieval. Wavelet packet transform provides a very good observation for the images by sub-band filtering. Different objects have distinctive characteristics in the sub-bands of wavelet packets, which should be discriminative for objects classification. In this paper, an object c... View full abstract»

  • A P2P Camera System with New Consistent Labeling Method Involving Only Simple Geometric Operations

    Consistent labeling is a fundamental problem in multiple-camera-multiple-human tracking. We present a new consistent labeling method called CPSPL that is used in our P2P human tracking system with multiple calibrated cameras, media servers, human trackers and trajectory mergers. The proposed method differs from most existent ones in that it only uses projective lines for establishing the correspon... View full abstract»

  • Content-Based Video Segment Reunification for TV Program Extraction

    This paper addresses the problem of automatic broadcasted TV program extraction from the low-level video data without using any metadata. In this context, the TV stream is first segmented. Segments are then classified into two categories: segments of inter-programs (e.g. commercials) and segments of programs that are parts of broadcasted TV programs (e.g. films, news, shows). One TV program can he... View full abstract»
