The benefits of high-end computation infrastructure facilities provided by cloud-based multimedia systems are attracting people all around the globe. However, such cloud-based systems possess security issues as third party servers become involved...

Creating Segments and Effects on Comics by Clustering Gaze Data
Ishwarya Thirunarayanan, Khimya Khetarpal, Sanjeev Koppal, Olivier Le Meur, John Shea, Eakta Jain
Article No.: 24
DOI: 10.1145/3078836

Traditional comics are increasingly being augmented with digital effects, such as recoloring, stereoscopy, and animation. An open question in this endeavor is identifying where in a comic panel the effects should be placed. We propose a fast,...

Query Expansion for Content-Based Similarity Search Using Local and Global Features
Michael E. Houle, Xiguo Ma, Vincent Oria, Jichao Sun
Article No.: 25
DOI: 10.1145/3063595

This article presents an efficient and totally unsupervised content-based similarity search method for multimedia data objects represented by high-dimensional feature vectors. The assumption is that the similarity measure is applicable to feature...

From Annotation to Computer-Aided Diagnosis: Detailed Evaluation of a Medical Multimedia System
Michael Riegler, Konstantin Pogorelov, Sigrun Losada Eskeland, Peter Thelin Schmidt, Zeno Albisser, Dag Johansen, Carsten Griwodz, Pål Halvorsen, Thomas De Lange
Article No.: 26
DOI: 10.1145/3079765

Holistic medical multimedia systems covering end-to-end functionality from data collection to aided diagnosis are highly needed, but rare. In many hospitals, the potential value of multimedia data collected through routine examinations is not...

Enhancing Person Re-identification in a Self-Trained Subspace
Xun Yang, Meng Wang, Richang Hong, Qi Tian, Yong Rui
Article No.: 27
DOI: 10.1145/3089249

Despite the promising progress made in recent years, person re-identification (re-ID) remains a challenging task due to the complex variations in human appearances from different camera views. For this challenging problem, a large variety of...
