This paper presents a method of gender classification by integrating facial, hairstyle, and clothing images. Initially, input images are separated into facial, hairstyle and clothing regions, and independently learned PCAs and GMMs based on thousands of sample images are applied to each region. The classification results are then integrated into a single(More)
This paper presents mathematical frameworks on temporal predic-tive processing in the MPEG video compression standard. Firstly, a coding gain is derived based on traditional prediction theories. The optimum ordering of three different picture types (I,P,B-pictures) is clarified according to image source characteristics. Secondly, a novel framework on the(More)
12 TCP is a popular internet protocol for reliable end-to-end data delivery, but it cannot be directly applied to wireless networks in which packet loss may be induced by higher BER or handover than congestion. TCP assumes that such packet loss is caused by network congestion and initiates congestion control procedures. In this paper, we present a novel(More)
CDN (Content Delivery Networks) improves end-user performance by replicating web contents on a group of geographically distributed content servers. Replication Algorithm plays an important role in helping users to retrieve Web objects from the content servers. If a user can directly get the requested objects from the content server, he need not to contact(More)
This paper proposes a feature space modification method for feature extraction of music, which is effective for the development of a content-based music information retrieval (MIR) system based on user preferences. The proposed method conducts clustering of all songs in the music collection, and utilizes the resulting cluster IDs as training data for(More)
