  • Toward transparent telepresence systems

    Publication Year: 2012, Page(s):xxxvi - xli

    Summary form only given. Dreams of telepresence are fed by special effects in movies, on stage, and even in mainstream news programs. These illusions may satisfy most passive viewers, but do not work for the actual distant participants. Even today's best "Telepresence" systems have difficulty supporting such simple capabilities as eye contact and gaze awareness among these multiple distant partici... View full abstract»

  • A Hierarchical Model for Human Interaction Recognition

    Recognizing human interactions is a challenging task due to partially occluded body parts and motion ambiguities in interactions. We observe that the interdependencies existing at both action level and body part level greatly help disambiguate similar individual movements and facilitate human interaction recognition. In this paper, we propose a novel hierarchical model to capture such interdepende... View full abstract»

  • Social Image Tagging by Mining Sparse Tag Patterns from Auxiliary Data

    Publication Year: 2012, Page(s):7 - 12
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1144 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    User-given tags associated with social images from photosharing websites (e.g., Flickr) are valuable auxiliary resources for the image tagging task. However, social images often suffer from noisy and incomplete tags, heavily degrading the effectiveness of previous image tagging approaches. To alleviate the problem, we introduce a Sparse Tag Patterns (STP) model to discover noiseless and complement... View full abstract»

  • Learning Global and Reconfigurable Part-Based Models for Object Detection

    This paper presents a method of learning global and reconfigurable part-based models (RPM) for object detection. Recently, deformable part-based model (DPM) is widely used. A DPM consists of a root node and a collection of part nodes, which is learned under the latent SVM formulation by treating part nodes as hidden variables. Although the configuration of parts (i.e., the shapes, sizes and locati... View full abstract»

  • Spiking and Blocking Events Detection and Analysis in Volleyball Videos

    In volleyball matches, spiking is the most effective way to gain points, while blocking is the action to prevent the opponents from getting scores by spiking. In this paper, we propose an intelligent system for automatic spiking events detection and blocking pattern classification in real volleyball videos. First, the entire videos are segmented into clips of rallies by whistle detection. Then, we... View full abstract»

  • Recognition of Multiple-Food Images by Detecting Candidate Regions

    Publication Year: 2012, Page(s):25 - 30
    Cited by:  Papers (12)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (917 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this paper, we propose a two-step method to recognize multiple-food images by detecting candidate regions with several methods and classifying them with various kinds of features. In the first step, we detect several candidate regions by fusing outputs of several region detectors including Felzenszwalb's deformable part model (DPM) [1], a circle detector and the JSEG region segmentation. In the... View full abstract»

    In general, user browsing behavior has been examined within specific tasks (e.g., search), or in the context of particular web sites or services ( e.g., in shopping sites). However, with the growth of social networks and the proliferation of many different types of web services ( e.g., news aggregators, blogs, forums, etc.), the web can be viewed as an ecosystem in which a user's actions in a part...

  • Group Recommendation Using External Followee for Social TV

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (473 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Group recommendation plays a significant role in Social TV systems, where online friends form into temporary groups to enjoy watching video together and interact with each other. Online microblogging systems introduce the "following" relationship that reflects the common interests between users in a group and external representative followees outside the group. Traditional group recommendation onl... View full abstract»

  • Multimodal Location Estimation of Consumer Media: Dealing with Sparse Training Data

    Cited by:  Papers (2)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (707 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This article describes a novel approach to the problem of associating geo-locations to consumer-produced multimedia data such as videos and photos that are publicly available on social networking websites such as Flickr. We specifically focus on the case where the available training data is sparse both in absolute numbers as well as geographic coverage when compared to the number of untagged query...

  • Empowering Cross-Domain Internet Media with Real-Time Topic Learning from Social Streams

    This paper aims to connect social media from disparate sources on the Internet by building a common topic space in-between, using which cross domain media recommendations can be realized on the web. The topic space is built and updated in real time by extending the Latent Dirichlet Allocation (LDA) model to cater to streaming online data. Our topical model, named Online Streaming LDA (OSLDA), is a... View full abstract»

    This paper examines the role of content analysis in media-rich online communities. We highlight changes in the multimedia generation and consumption process that has occurred the past decade, and discuss several new angles this has brought to multimedia analysis research. We first examine the content production, dissemination and consumption patterns in the recent social media studies literature. ... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (209 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    A novel scalable video coding (SVC) scheme is proposed for video transmission over loss networks, which builds on an estimation-theoretic (ET) framework for optimal prediction and error concealment, given all available information from both the current base layer and prior enhancement layer frames. It incorporates a recursive end-to-end distortion estimation technique, namely, the spectral coeffic... View full abstract»
