Cache-Centric Video Recommendation: An Approach to Improve the Efficiency of YouTube Caches
Dilip Kumar Krishnappa, Michael Zink, Carsten Griwodz, Pål Halvorsen
Article No.: 48
DOI: 10.1145/2716310

In this article, we take advantage of the user behavior of requesting videos from the top of the related list provided by YouTube to improve the performance of YouTube caches. We recommend that local caches reorder the related lists associated...

Parallel Massive Clustering of Discrete Distributions
Yu Zhang, James Z. Wang, Jia Li
Article No.: 49
DOI: 10.1145/2700293

The trend of analyzing big data in artificial intelligence demands highly-scalable machine learning algorithms, among which clustering is a fundamental and arguably the most widely applied method. To extend the applications of regular vector-based...

Efficient MAC for Real-Time Video Streaming over Wireless LAN
Eilwoo Baik, Amit Pande, Prasant Mohapatra
Article No.: 50
DOI: 10.1145/2744412

Wireless communication systems are highly prone to channel errors. With video being a major player in Internet traffic and undergoing exponential growth in wireless domain, we argue for the need of a Video-aware MAC (VMAC) to significantly improve...

Similarity Search over the Cloud Based on Image Descriptors' Dimensions Value Cardinalities
Stefanos Antaris, Dimitrios Rafailidis
Article No.: 51
DOI: 10.1145/2716315

In recognition that in modern applications billions of images are stored into distributed databases in different logical or physical locations, we propose a similarity search strategy over the cloud based on the dimensions value cardinalities of...

Audio Musical Dice Game: A User-Preference-Aware Medley Generating System
Yin-Tzu Lin, I-Ting Liu, Jyh-Shing Roger Jang, Ja-Ling Wu
Article No.: 52
DOI: 10.1145/2710015

This article proposes a framework for creating user-preference-aware music medleys from users' music collections. We treat the medley generation process as an audio version of a musical dice game. Once the user's collection has been analyzed, the...

An Advanced Visibility Restoration Algorithm for Single Hazy Images
Bo-Hao Chen, Shih-Chia Huang
Article No.: 53
DOI: 10.1145/2726947

Haze removal is the process by which horizontal obscuration is eliminated from hazy images captured during inclement weather. Images captured in natural environments with varied weather conditions frequently exhibit localized light sources or...

Cross-Platform Emerging Topic Detection and Elaboration from Multimedia Streams
Bing-Kun Bao, Changsheng Xu, Weiqing Min, Mohammod Shamim Hossain
Article No.: 54
DOI: 10.1145/2730889

With the explosive growth of online media platforms in recent years, it becomes more and more attractive to provide users a solution of emerging topic detection and elaboration. And this posts a real challenge to both industrial and academic...

QuGu: A Quality Guaranteed Video Dissemination Protocol Over Urban Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks
Yang Li, Azzedine Boukerche
Article No.: 55
DOI: 10.1145/2725469

Video dissemination over Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks is an attractive technology that supports many novel applications. The merit of this work lies in the design of an efficient video dissemination protocol that provides high video quality at...

The Cameraman Operating My Virtual Camera is Artificial: Can the Machine Be as Good as a Human?
Vamsidhar Reddy Gaddam, Ragnhild Eg, Ragnar Langseth, Carsten Griwodz, Pål Halvorsen
Article No.: 56
DOI: 10.1145/2744411

In this article, we argue that the energy spent in designing autonomous camera control systems is not spent in vain. We present a real-time virtual camera system that can create smooth camera motion. Similar systems are frequently...

Multi-Camera Coordination and Control in Surveillance Systems: A Survey
Prabhu Natarajan, Pradeep K. Atrey, Mohan Kankanhalli
Article No.: 57
DOI: 10.1145/2710128

The use of multiple heterogeneous cameras is becoming more common in today's surveillance systems. In order to perform surveillance tasks, effective coordination and control in multi-camera systems is very important, and is catching significant...
