This paper presents a novel two-phase method for audio representation, discriminative and compact audio representation (DCAR), and evaluates its performance at detecting events and scenes in consumer-produced videos. In the first phase of DCAR, each audio track is modeled using a Gaussian mixture model (GMM) that includes several components to capture the variability within that track. The second...

Linear perspective is widely used in landscape photography to create the impression of depth on a 2D photo. Automated understanding of linear perspective in landscape photography has several real-world applications, including aesthetics assessment, image retrieval, and on-site feedback for photo composition, yet adequate automated understanding has been elusive. We address this problem by... Read more on IEEE Xplore

Face analysis from 2D images and videos is a central task in many multimedia applications. Methods developed to this end perform either face recognition or facial expression recognition, and in both cases results are negatively influenced by variations in pose, illumination, and resolution of the face. Such variations have a lower impact on 3D face data, which has given the way to the idea of... Read more on IEEE Xplore
