    Portrait photos (facial images) play important social and emotional roles in our life. This type of visual media is unfortunately inaccessible by users with visual impairment. This paper proposes a systematic approach for automatically converting human facial images into a tactile form that can be printed on a tactile printer and explored by a user who is blind. We propose a deformable Bayesian Ac... View full abstract»

    A framework is presented which addresses the issues related to the real-time implementation of synchronized video and audio time-scale and pitch-scale modification algorithms. It allows for seamless real-time transition between continually varying, independent time-scale and pitch-scale parameters arising as a result of manual or automatic intervention. We illuminate the problems which arise in a ... View full abstract»

    This paper introduces a video copy detection system which efficiently matches individual frames and then verifies their spatio-temporal consistency. The approach for matching frames relies on a recent local feature indexing method, which is at the same time robust to significant video transformations and efficient in terms of memory usage and computation time. We match either keyframes or uniforml... View full abstract»

    Understanding the subjective meaning of a visual query, by converting it into numerical parameters that can be extracted and compared by a computer, is the paramount challenge in the field of intelligent image retrieval, also referred to as the ??semantic gap?? problem. In this paper, an innovative approach is proposed that combines a relevance feedback (RF) approach with an evolutionary stochasti... View full abstract»

  • Image Classification With Kernelized Spatial-Context

    The goal of image classification is to classify a collection of unlabeled images into a set of semantic classes. Many methods have been proposed to approach this goal by leveraging visual appearances of local patches in images. However, the spatial context between these local patches also provides significant information to improve the classification accuracy. Traditional spatial contextual models... View full abstract»

    In recent years, constructing mathematical models for visual concepts by using content features, i.e., color, texture, shape, or local features, has led to the fast development of concept-based multimedia retrieval. In concept-based multimedia retrieval, defining a good lexicon of high-level concepts is the first and important step. However, which concepts should be used for data collection and mo...

    Salient object detection is a basic technique for many computer vision applications. In this paper, we propose an adaptive computational model to detect the salient object in color images. Firstly, three human observation behaviors and scalable subtractive clustering techniques are used to construct attention Gaussian mixture model (AGMM) and background Gaussian mixture model (BGMM). Secondly, the... View full abstract»

    Mobile devices are increasingly popular and many of them are capable of handling multimedia content. Users enjoy the ability to access their collection of media objects anywhere. Wireless connectivity is often integrated into these handhelds, therefore providing the opportunity to stream multimedia content among mobile and ad hoc peers. An important consideration is to transfer a multimedia object... View full abstract»

    There are about 8% of men and 0.8% of women suffering from colorblindness. Due to the loss of certain color information, regions or objects in several images cannot be recognized by these viewers and this may degrade their perception and understanding of the images. This paper introduces an in-image accessibility indication scheme, which aims to automatically point out regions in which the content... View full abstract»

    A conditional access system (CAS) proposed by Sun has a critical security weakness in its inability to preserve backward secrecy; a former subscriber can still access programs despite his or her change in status. This weakness in Sun 's CAS originates because 1) no change is made to a group key after a new member arrives, and 2) updates of group keys are done in an insecure manner. We show how sim...
