    The main economic drive of ambient intelligence is to provide the customer with a valued experience and not just a simple service. In The Experience Economy, Pine and Gilmore defined the historical background for this economic progression from a service economy to an experience economy. Pay-TV has been one of the real culprits adding to this slow transition to an experience-based economy, failing ... View full abstract»

    Technology has never been the exclusive domain of science, any more than expressivity has been the vaunted preserve of art. Clearly, ample room for integration and crossover exists-for example, with hybridization of traditional artists' tools through software programs and standardization of artists' methods. There is much confusion these days about the relation of art to technology. Picturing is a... View full abstract»

    The authors combine two different biometric modalities for next-generation vehicles that use biometric person recognition. Next-generation vehicles will undoubtedly feature biometric person recognition as part of an effort to improve the driving experience. Today's technology prevents such systems from operating satisfactorily under adverse conditions. A proposed framework for achieving person rec... View full abstract»

    The Internet has revolutionized multimedia content distribution, shifting the way content producers and users approach digital rights. However, ubiquitous computing will alter the digital rights management environment even more, and current techniques are ill equipped to deal with the changes. Distributed trust can help to overcome the challenge of maintaining digital rights for ubiquitous computi... View full abstract»

    Improving Web application quality will require automated evaluation tools. Many such tools are already available either as commercial products or research prototypes. The authors use their automated evaluation tools, ReWeb and TestWeb, for Web analysis and testing that improves Web pages and applications and to find some anomalies and failures in four case studies.

    The mobile phone industry has a problem with conversion from MIDI to SP-MIDI, which handles specific polyphonic limits. Simple specific polyphonic reduction algorithms, such as note-stealing, may lose or interrupt important musical information. The authors help resolve the problem with a phrase-stealing algorithm that drops the perceptually least important notes and preserves the most important ph... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1536 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The authors use a visible watermarking algorithm for digital rights management that computes composite coefficients using global and local characteristics of the host and watermark images. They also use a contrast-sensitive function and block classification in the discrete wavelet transform domain for a better visual effect. The original and watermark images are divided into different blocks and c... View full abstract»

    Multimedia content adaptation enables users with different access networks, client devices, and/or user profiles to access the same information source. However, content adaptation also introduces security implications. We conduct an in-depth investigation into the potential security issues involved and analyze general security architectures and requirements. In particular, we address the issue of ...

    In this article, the authors share with us an interesting use for the latest laser-scanning-based 3D imaging technology for reconstructing a thule whalebone house. All major components (such as date capturing, data modeling, display, and interaction) are covered to demonstrate how archaeological research can benefit from this new technology for the purposes of testing and education. Although this ... View full abstract»
