    Most semantic video search methods use text-keyword queries or example video clips and images. But such methods have limitations. To address the problems of example-based video search approaches and avoid the use of specialized models, we conduct semantic video searches using a reranking method that automatically reorders the initial text search results based on visual cues and associated context....

    The Tiling Slideshow system automatically organizes consumer photos and provides a novel audiovisual presentation. Displaying at the same pace as user-selected music, photos are elaborately manipulated and displayed to mold a novel browsing experience. In contrast to conventional photo slideshows, the proposed presentation provides tighter audiovisual coordination, and offers a more lively viewing... View full abstract»

    A user interface to music repositories called nepTune creates a virtual landscape for an arbitrary collection of digital music files, letting users freely navigate the collection. Automatically extracting features from the audio signal and clustering the music pieces accomplish this. The clustering helps generate a 3D island landscape. The rapidly growing research field of music information retrie... View full abstract»

    In this article, we presented a progressive-cut algorithm for background and foreground segmentation. We first analyzed the user intention behind the additional user-specified stroke, and then incorporated the user intention into the graph-cut framework: we derived an eroded graph to prevent overshrinkage, and added a user attention term to the energy function to compress overexpansion in low-inte...

    Streaming linear media objects has become ubiquitous on today's Internet. Interactive, nonlinear media objects, such as large 3D models and visualization databases, have proven difficult to stream. The channel set adaptation (CSA) framework lets clients request custom data flows for interactive applications using standard broadcast or multicast join and leave operations. CSA scales to support larg... View full abstract»

    The growing interest in haptic applications suggests that haptic digital media will soon become widely available, and the need will arise to protect digital haptic data from misuse. In this article, we present our study and findings on psychophysical experiments regarding human abilities to perceive a digital watermark, or hidden signal, through a haptic interface.
