Label-to-region with continuity-biased bi-layer sparsity priors
Xiaobai Liu, Shuicheng Yan, Bin Cheng, Jinhui Tang, Tat-Sheng Chua, Hai Jin
Article No.: 50
DOI: 10.1145/2379790.2379792

In this work, we investigate how to reassign the fully annotated labels at image level to those contextually derived semantic regions, namely Label-to-Region (L2R), in a collective manner. Given a set of input images with label annotations, the...

Efficient targeted search using a focus and context video browser
Ork De Rooij, Marcel Worring
Article No.: 51
DOI: 10.1145/2379790.2379793

Currently there are several interactive content-based video retrieval techniques and systems available. However, retrieval performance depends heavily on the means of interaction. We argue that effective CBVR requires efficient, specialized user...

User perception of media content association in olfaction-enhanced multimedia

Article No.: 53
DOI: 10.1145/2379790.2379795

Presentation support tools, such as Microsoft PowerPoint, pose challenges both in terms of creating linear presentations from complex data and fluidly navigating such linear structures when presenting to diverse audiences. NextSlidePlease is a...

Object-based image retrieval with kernel on adjacency matrix and local combined features
Heng Qi, Keqiu Li, Yanming Shen, Wenyu Qu
Article No.: 54
DOI: 10.1145/2379790.2379796

In object-based image retrieval, there are two important issues: an effective image representation method for representing image content and an effective image classification method for processing user feedback to find more images containing the...

In-video product annotation with web information mining
Guangda Li, Meng Wang, Zheng Lu, Richang Hong, Tat-Seng Chua
Article No.: 55
DOI: 10.1145/2379790.2379797

Product annotation in videos is of great importance for video browsing, search, and advertisement. However, most of the existing automatic video annotation research focuses on the annotation of high-level concepts, such as events, scenes, and...

Algorithms for stochastic optimization of multicast content delivery with network coding
Ajay Gopinathan, Zongpeng Li
Article No.: 56
DOI: 10.1145/2379790.2379798

The usage of network resources by content providers is commonly governed by Service-Level Agreements (SLA) between the content provider and the network service provider. Resource usage exceeding the limits specified in the SLA incurs the content...
