Privacy preserving continuous multimedia streaming in MANETs
Kazuya Sakai, Wei-Shinn Ku, Min-Te Sun, Roger Zimmermann
Article No.: 23
DOI: 10.1145/2501643.2501645

At present, mobile devices are prevalent with end users and continuous media streaming services in mobile ad-hoc networks (MANETs) support popular applications. It is required for applications that stream isochronous media that the network link be...

Robust image annotation via simultaneous feature and sample outlier pursuit
Jian Dong, Bin Cheng, Xiangyu Chen, Tat-Seng Chua, Shuicheng Yan, Xi Zhou
Article No.: 24
DOI: 10.1145/2501643.2501646

Graph-based semi-supervised image annotation has achieved great success in a variety of studies, yet it essentially and intuitively suffers from both the irrelevant/noisy features (referred to as feature outliers) and the unusual/corrupted samples...

Hybrid method based on topography for robust detection of iris center and eye corners
Arantxa Villanueva, Victoria Ponz, Laura Sesma-Sanchez, Mikel Ariz, Sonia Porta, Rafael Cabeza
Article No.: 25
DOI: 10.1145/2501643.2501647

A multistage procedure to detect eye features is presented. Multiresolution and topographic classification are used to detect the iris center. The eye corner is calculated combining valley detection and eyelid curve extraction. The algorithm is...

Exploiting content relevance and social relevance for personalized ad recommendation on internet TV
Bo Wang, Jinqiao Wang, Hanqing Lu
Article No.: 26
DOI: 10.1145/2501643.2501648

There have been not many interactions between the two dominant forms of mass communication: television and the Internet, while nowadays the appearance of Internet television makes them more closely. Different with traditional TV in a passive mode...

Mobile haptic e-book system to support 3D immersive reading in ubiquitous environments
Kazi Masudul Alam, Abu Saleh Md Mahfujur Rahman, Abdulmotaleb El Saddik
Article No.: 27
DOI: 10.1145/2501643.2501649

In order to leverage the use of various modalities such as audio-visual materials in instilling effective learning behavior we present an intuitive approach of annotation based hapto-audio-visual interaction with the traditional digital learning...

Towards decrypting attractiveness via multi-modality cues
Tam V. Nguyen, Si Liu, Bingbing Ni, Jun Tan, Yong Rui, Shuicheng Yan
Article No.: 28
DOI: 10.1145/2501643.2501650

Decrypting the secret of beauty or attractiveness has been the pursuit of artists and philosophers for centuries. To date, the computational model for attractiveness estimation has been actively explored in computer vision and multimedia...

Towards optimizing human labeling for interactive image tagging
Jinhui Tang, Qiang Chen, Meng Wang, Shuicheng Yan, Tat-Seng Chua, Ramesh Jain
Article No.: 29
DOI: 10.1145/2501643.2501651

Interactive tagging is an approach that combines human and computer to assign descriptive keywords to image contents in a semi-automatic way. It can avoid the problems in automatic tagging and pure manual tagging by achieving a compromise between...

A framework for network aware caching for video on demand systems
Bogdan Carbunar, Rahul Potharaju, Michael Pearce, Venugopal Vasudevan, Michael Needham
Article No.: 30
DOI: 10.1145/2501643.2501652

Video on Demand (VoD) services allow users to select and locally consume remotely stored content. We investigate the use of caching to solve the scalability issues of several existing VoD providers. We propose metrics and goals that define the...
