    There are billions of photographs on the Internet, representing an extremely large, rich, and nearly comprehensive visual record of virtually every famous place on Earth. Unfortunately, these massive community photo collections are almost completely unstructured, making it very difficult to use them for applications such as the virtual exploration of our world. Over the past several years, advance... View full abstract»

  • Infinite Images: Creating and Exploring a Large Photorealistic Virtual Space

    We present a system for generating “infinite” images from large collections of photos by means of transformed image retrieval. Given a query image, we first transform it to simulate how it would look if the camera moved sideways and then perform image retrieval based on the transformed image. We then blend the query and retrieved images to create a larger panorama. Repeating this pro... View full abstract»

  • Toward Large-Scale Face Recognition Using Social Network Context

    Personal photographs are being captured in digital form at an accelerating rate, and our computational tools for searching, browsing, and sharing these photos are struggling to keep pace. One promising approach is automatic face recognition, which would allow photos to be organized by the identities of the individuals they contain. However, achieving accurate recognition at the scale of the Web re... View full abstract»

  • Contextual Internet Multimedia Advertising

    The advent of media-sharing sites has led to the unprecedented Internet delivery of community-contributed media like images and videos. Those visual contents have become the primary sources for online advertising. Conventional advertising treats multimedia advertising as general text advertising by displaying advertisements either relevant to the queries or the Web pages, without considering the p...

    Modern computer vision research consumes labelled data in quantity, and building datasets has become an important activity. The Internet has become a tremendous resource for computer vision researchers. By seeing the Internet as a vast, slightly disorganized collection of visual data, we can build datasets. The key point is that visual data are surrounded by contextual information like text and HT... View full abstract»

  • Learning Object Categories From Internet Image Searches

    Publication Year: 2010, Page(s):1453 - 1466
    Cited by:  Papers (16)  |  Patents (2)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (2892 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this paper, we describe a simple approach to learning models of visual object categories from images gathered from Internet image search engines. The images for a given keyword are typically highly variable, with a large fraction being unrelated to the query term, and thus pose a challenging environment from which to learn. By training our models directly from Internet images, we remove the nee... View full abstract»

  • LabelMe: Online Image Annotation and Applications

    Central to the development of computer vision systems is the collection and use of annotated images spanning our visual world. Annotations may include information about the identity, spatial extent, and viewpoint of the objects present in a depicted scene. Such a database is useful for the training and evaluation of computer vision systems. Motivated by the availability of images on the Internet, ... View full abstract»

  • I2T: Image Parsing to Text Description

    Publication Year: 2010, Page(s):1485 - 1508
    Cited by:  Papers (73)  |  Patents (2)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (3873 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this paper, we present an image parsing to text description (I2T) framework that generates text descriptions of image and video content based on image understanding. The proposed I2T framework follows three steps: 1) input images (or video frames) are decomposed into their constituent visual patterns by an image parsing engine, in a spirit similar to parsing sentences in natural language; 2) th...

    Image is a powerful medium for expressing one's ideas and rightly confirms the adage, “One picture is worth a thousand words.” In this work, we explore the application of world knowledge in the form of Wikipedia to achieve this objective-literally. In the first part, we disambiguate and rank semantic concepts associated with ambiguous keywords by exploiting link structure of a... View full abstract»

    The web is not perfect: while text is easily searched and organized, pictures (the vast majority of the bits that one can find online) are not. In order to see how one could improve the web and make pictures first-class citizens of the web, I explore the idea of Visipedia, a visual interface for Wikipedia that is able to answer visual queries and enables experts to contribute and organize visual k...

    The IRE awarded its 1960 Medal of Honor to Harry Nyquist for his "fundamental contributions to a quantitative understanding of thermal noise, data transmission, and negative feedback." He is remembered especially for his formulation of what became known as the "Nyquist criterion" for determining the stability of amplifiers. View full abstract»
