Block-based compression tends to be inefficient when blocks contain arbitrary shaped discontinuities. Recently, graph-based approaches have been proposed to address this issue, but the cost of transmitting graph topology often overcome the gain of such techniques. In this work we propose a new Superpixel-driven Graph Transform (SDGT) that uses clusters of(More)
The presented work addresses the topic of energy savings in existing public buildings, when no significant retrofits on building envelope or plants can be done and savings can be achieved by designing intelligent ICT-based service to monitor and control environmental conditions, energy loads and plants operation. At the end of 2010 the European Commission,(More)
In image compression, classical block-based separable transforms tend to be inefficient when image blocks contain arbitrarily shaped discontinuities. For this reason, transforms incorporating directional information are an appealing alternative. In this paper, we propose a new approach to this problem, namely, a discrete cosine transform (DCT) that can be(More)
In this work, we propose a new method of graph construction for graph-based image compression. In particular, because of the overhead incurred by graph transmission to the receiver, we focus our attention to develop an efficient method to construct and to code the graph representation of the image. The proposed method employs innovative edge metrics,(More)
In image compression, block-based transforms tend to be inefficient when blocks contain arbitrarily shaped discontinuities. For this reason, transforms incorporating directional information are an appealing alternative. Starting from the graph Fourier transform, in this paper we present a new transform, called Subspace-Sparsifying Steer-able DCT, that can(More)
