    All types of media influence our opinions, feelings, and mood. We consume it because it reinforces our behavior and we identify with roles and values in it. It educates, informs, and entertains us through both escapism and emotional release. In short, it shapes our lives. The technology that today lets us interact with nearly everyone about any topic fosters the broadcasting approach and drives ou... View full abstract»

    As a scientific researcher interested in computer vision and art, the author spent the last seven years working with David Hockney, an artist of whom a respected source writes that "his drawings and etchings are amongst the deftest of this century; posterity may well acclaim him the greatest of modern portraitists". Together, Hockney and the author have proposed and provided supporting evidence fo... View full abstract»

    It's about how multimedia content like Friendster, MySpace, and YouTube impacts everybody, including our community. The fact that paper articles do not favor the audiovisual material we analyze makes our descriptions rather cumbersome. Yet, obviously we like it this way as on a large scale we do not make use of even a simple offer such as the ACM Multimedia Conference's video figures, which accomp... View full abstract»

    We present a museum guidance system called PhoneGuide that uses widespread camera-equipped mobile phones for on-device object recognition in combination with pervasive tracking. It also provides location- and object-aware multimedia content to museum visitors, and is scalable to cover a large number of museum objects. View full abstract»

    We have developed a multicamera system, Digital City Surveillance, which uses a new calibration-free behavior recognition method for monitoring human activity at a subway station. We trained nine support vector machines from operator-classified data to recognize 512 combinations of events. Our method of attention control greatly reduced computation and increased classification accuracy View full abstract»

    Large-scale multimedia streaming over the Internet requires an enormous amount of server and network resources. Traditional client-server approaches allocate a dedicated stream from the server for each client request, which is expensive and doesn't scale well. By using end hosts' huge bandwidth and computational capacity, peer-to-peer technologies shed new light on media streaming applications' de... View full abstract»

    We propose a system called Comodin, based on a content distribution network (CDN), that provides collaborative media playback services. Specifically, the system enables an Internet-based interactive media service for e-learning and e-entertainment, allowing an explicitly formed group of clients to view and cooperatively control a shared remote media playback View full abstract»

    Developing the code to parse and generate multimedia bitstreams has traditionally been a repetitive and error-prone task. It has also been an area of application development that defied the goal of software reuse. In contrast, BSDL abstracts the minutiae of bitstream parsing out of software code, into an interoperable data file (the BSDL schema), allowing developers to concentrate on the functiona...

    Sports content continues to generate a global appeal that transcends national, cultural, religious, and gender boundaries. Historically, TV technology's success has been intertwined with the development of televised sports. In the famous words of pioneering TV sports director Harry Coyle, "television got off the ground because of sports." Sports showcases offer a splendid platform to promote new m...
