Enhancing news organization for convenient retrieval and browsing
Zechao Li, Jing Liu, Meng Wang, Changsheng Xu, Hanqing Lu
Article No.: 1
DOI: 10.1145/2488732

To facilitate users to access news quickly and comprehensively, we design a news search and browsing system named GeoVisNews, in which the news elements of “Where”, “Who”, “What” and “When” are...

A survey of music similarity and recommendation from music context data
Peter Knees, Markus Schedl
Article No.: 2
DOI: 10.1145/2542205.2542206

In this survey article, we give an overview of methods for music similarity estimation and music recommendation based on music context data. Unlike approaches that rely on music content and have been researched for almost two decades,...

Detecting profilable and overlapping communities with user-generated multimedia contents in LBSNs
Yi-Liang Zhao, Qiang Chen, Shuicheng Yan, Tat-Seng Chua, Daqing Zhang
Article No.: 3
DOI: 10.1145/2502415

In location-based social networks (LBSNs), users implicitly interact with each other by visiting places, issuing comments and/or uploading photos. These heterogeneous interactions convey the latent information for identifying meaningful user...

Secure randomized image watermarking based on singular value decomposition
Gaurav Bhatnagar, Q. M. Jonathan Wu, Pradeep K. Atrey
Article No.: 4
DOI: 10.1145/2542205.2542207

In this article, a novel logo watermarking scheme is proposed based on wavelet frame transform, singular value decomposition and automatic thresholding. The proposed scheme essentially rectifies the ambiguity problem in the SVD-based watermarking....

Content-based copy detection through multimodal feature representation and temporal pyramid matching
Luntian Mou, Tiejun Huang, Yonghong Tian, Menglin Jiang, Wen Gao
Article No.: 5
DOI: 10.1145/2542205.2542208

Content-based copy detection (CBCD) is drawing increasing attention as an alternative technology to watermarking for video identification and copyright protection. In this article, we present a comprehensive method to detect copies that are...

Large-scale multilabel propagation based on efficient sparse graph construction
Xiangyu Chen, Yadong Mu, Hairong Liu, Shuicheng Yan, Yong Rui, Tat-Seng Chua
Article No.: 6
DOI: 10.1145/2542205.2542209

With the popularity of photo-sharing websites, the number of web images has exploded into unseen magnitude. Annotating such large-scale data will cost huge amount of human resources and is thus unaffordable. Motivated by this challenging problem,...

Annotation propagation in image databases using similarity graphs
Michael E. Houle, Vincent Oria, Shin'ichi Satoh, Jichao Sun
Article No.: 7
DOI: 10.1145/2487736

The practicality of large-scale image indexing and querying methods depends crucially upon the availability of semantic information. The manual tagging of images with semantic information is in general very labor intensive, and existing methods...

MOWL: An ontology representation language for web-based multimedia applications
Anupama Mallik, Hiranmay Ghosh, Santanu Chaudhury, Gaurav Harit
Article No.: 8
DOI: 10.1145/2542205.2542210

Several multimedia applications need to reason with concepts and their media properties in specific domain contexts. Media properties of concepts exhibit some unique characteristics that cannot be dealt with conceptual modeling schemes followed in...
