    Haptics, the technology which brings tactile or force-feedback to users, has a great potential for enhancing movies and could lead to new immersive experiences. This article introduces haptic cinematography, which presents haptics as a new component of the filmmaker's toolkit. The authors propose a taxonomy of haptic effects and introduce new effects coupled with classical cinematographic motions ... View full abstract»

    Clustering faces in movies is a challenging task because faces in a feature-length film are relatively uncontrolled and vary widely in appearance. Such variations make it difficult to appropriately measure the similarity between faces under significantly different settings. In this article, the authors develop a method that improves face-clustering accuracy by incorporating the social context info... View full abstract»

    Existing mobile visual location recognition (MVLR) applications typically rely on bag-of-features (BOF) representation, which shows superior performance in retrieval accuracy. However, although the BOF framework is promising, it is not compact enough for on-device MVLR. The authors have made two contributions to the design of a BOF-based on-device MVLR system. First, to generate BOF descriptors, t... View full abstract»

    This article proposes a multimedia analysis framework to process video and text jointly for understanding events and answering user queries. The framework produces a parse graph that represents the compositional structures of spatial information (objects and scenes), temporal information (actions and events), and causal information (causalities between events and fluents) in the video and text. Th... View full abstract»
