    This paper unravels the problem of temporal video segmentation, or video parsing, and explores the possibilities for defining theoretical limits for the expected performance of a general parsing algorithm. In particular, we address the challenge of computing the coherence of video content, which is critical to the ability of an algorithm to parse a video automatically. If this coherence is difficu...

  • A Multiple Visual Models Based Perceptive Analysis Framework for Multilevel Video Summarization

    In this paper, we propose a generic framework to human perception analysis in video understanding based on multiple visual cues. Video features that prominently influence human perception, such as motion, contrast, special scenes, and statistical rhythm, are first extracted and modeled. A perception curve that corresponds to human perception change is then constructed from these individual models ... View full abstract»

  • Learning Midlevel Image Features for Natural Scene and Texture Classification

    Publication Year: 2007, Page(s):286 - 297

    This paper deals with coding of natural scenes in order to extract semantic information. We present a new scheme to project natural scenes onto a basis in which each dimension encodes statistically independent information. Basis extraction is performed by independent component analysis (ICA) applied to image patches culled from natural scenes. The study of the resulting coding units (coding filter...

    In this paper, we present a framework for simultaneous image segmentation and object labeling leading to automatic image annotation. Focusing on semantic analysis of images, it contributes to knowledge-assisted multimedia analysis and bridging the gap between semantics and low level visual features. The proposed framework operates at semantic level using possible semantic labels, formally represen... View full abstract»

  • An Object- and User-Driven System for Semantic-Based Image Annotation and Retrieval

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1198 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this paper, a system for object-based semi-automatic indexing and retrieval of natural images is introduced. Three important concepts underpin the proposed system: a new strategy to fuse different low-level content descriptions; a learning technique involving user relevance feedback; and a novel object based model to link semantic terms and visual objects. To achieve high accuracy in the retrie... View full abstract»

  • Semantic Home Photo Categorization

    A semantic categorization method for generic home photo is proposed. The main contribution of this paper is to exploit a two-layered classification model incorporating camera metadata with low-level features for multilabel detection. The two-layered support vector machine (SVM) classifiers operate to detect local and global photo semantics in a feed-forward way. The first layer aims to predict lik... View full abstract»

  • Personalized Content Retrieval in Context Using Ontological Knowledge

    Personalized content retrieval aims at improving the retrieval process by taking into account the particular interests of individual users. However, not all user preferences are relevant in all situations. It is well known that human preferences are complex, multiple, heterogeneous, changing, even contradictory, and should be understood in context with the user goals and tasks at hand. In this pap...

    The study of the associations between audio and video content has numerous important applications in the fields of information retrieval and multimedia content authoring. In this work, we focus on music videos which exhibit a broad range of structural and semantic relationships between the music and the video content. To identify such relationships, a two-level automatic structuring of the music a... View full abstract»

    We propose a novel approach to the task of identifying performers from their playing styles. We investigate how skilled musicians (Jazz saxophone players in particular) express and communicate their view of the musical and emotional content of musical pieces and how to use this information in order to automatically identify performers. We study deviations of parameters such as pitch, timing, ampli... View full abstract»

    This paper addresses the focus of this special issue by analyzing the potential contribution of linguistic content and other nonimage aspects to the processing of audiovisual data. It summarizes the various ways in which linguistic content analysis contributes to enhancing the semantic annotation of multimedia content, and, as a consequence, to improving the effectiveness of conceptual media acces...

  • Integrating Discriminant and Descriptive Information for Dimension Reduction and Classification

    In this paper, a novel hybrid dimension reduction technique for classification is proposed based on the hybrid analysis of principal component analysis (PCA) and linear discriminant analysis (LDA). LDA is known for capturing the most discriminant features of the data in the projected space while PCA is known for preserving the most descriptive ones after projection. Our hybrid technique integrates... View full abstract»

  • Binary Partition Tree for Semantic Object Extraction and Image Segmentation

    In this work, we demonstrate a systematic way to analyze a binary partition tree representation of natural images for the purposes of archiving and segmentation. Within the tree structure, these problems are transformed into locating prevalent tree branches. With a user interface these points can be found manually by browsing branches. However, tree visualization is difficult due to the high node ... View full abstract»

    The Corel Image set is widely used for image annotation performance evaluation although it has been claimed that Corel images are relatively easy to annotate. The aim of this paper is to demonstrate some of the disadvantages of datasets like the Corel set for effective auto-annotation evaluation. We first compare the performance of several annotation algorithms using the Corel set and find that si... View full abstract»
