    This paper proposes novel scalable mesh coding designs exploiting the intraband or composite statistical dependencies between the wavelet coefficients. A Laplacian mixture model is proposed to approximate the distribution of the wavelet coefficients. This model proves to be more accurate when compared to commonly employed single Laplacian or generalized Gaussian distribution models. Using the mixt... View full abstract»

    The automatic discovery of group conversational behavior is a relevant problem in social computing. In this paper, we present an approach to address this problem by defining a novel group descriptor called bag of group-nonverbal-patterns (NVPs) defined on brief observations of group interaction, and by using principled probabilistic topic models to discover topics. The proposed bag of group NVPs a... View full abstract»

  • Visualizing Image Collections Using High-Entropy Layout Distributions

    Mechanisms for visualizing image collections are essential for browsing and exploring their content. This is especially true when metadata are ineffective in retrieving items due to the sparsity or esoteric nature of text. An obvious approach is to automatically lay out sets of images in ways that reflect relationships between the items. However, dimensionality reduction methods that map from high...

  • Sequence Multi-Labeling: A Unified Video Annotation Scheme With Spatial and Temporal Context

    Automatic video annotation is a challenging yet important problem for content-based video indexing and retrieval. In most existing works, annotation is formulated as a multi-labeling problem over individual shots. However, video is by nature informative in spatial and temporal context of semantic concepts. In this paper, we formulate video annotation as a sequence multi-labeling (SML) problem over... View full abstract»

    Recent years have witnessed the great success of social media websites. Tag-based image search is an important approach to accessing the image content on these websites. However, the existing ranking methods for tag-based image search frequently return results that are irrelevant or not diverse. This paper proposes a diverse relevance ranking scheme that is able to take relevance and diversity int... View full abstract»

  • Information-Theoretic Analysis of Input Strokes in Visual Object Cutout

    Semantic object cutout serves as a basic unit in various image editing systems. In a typical scenario, users are required to provide several strokes which indicate part of the pixels as image background or objects. However, most existing approaches are passive in the sense of accepting input strokes without checking the consistence with user's intention. Here we argue that an active strategy may p...

    Summarizing long unconstrained videos is gaining importance in surveillance, web-based video browsing, and video-archival applications. Summarizing a video requires one to identify key aspects that contain the essence of the video. In this paper, we propose an approach that optimizes two criteria that a video summary should embody. The first criterion, “coverage,” requires that the s... View full abstract»

    Media flows coexist with TCP-based data traffic on the Internet and are required to be TCP-friendly. The TCP protocol slowly increases its sending rate until episodes of congestion occur, and then it quickly reduces its rate to remove congestion. However, media flows can be sensitive to even brief episodes of congestion. In this paper, we are interested in protecting media flows from TCP-induced c... View full abstract»

    Resource allocation plays a critical role in multisession video streaming over mesh networks to maximize the overall video presentation quality under transmission delay and network resource constraints. A critical component in efficient resource allocation is to analyze and model the multihop queuing behavior along the transmission path, estimate the packet loss ratio due to delay bound violation,...

    This paper presents TURINstream, a novel P2P video streaming architecture designed to jointly achieve low delay, robustness to peer churning, limited protocol overhead, and quality-of-service differentiation based on peers cooperation. Separate control and video overlays are maintained by peers organized in clusters that represent sets of collaborating peers. Clusters are created by means of a dis... View full abstract»
