Twitter, or the world of 140 characters poses serious challenges to the efficacy of topic models on short, messy text. While topic models such as Latent Dirichlet Allocation (LDA) have a long history of successful application to news articles and academic abstracts, they are often less coherent when applied to microblog content like Twitter. In this paper,(More)
In this paper, we present a novel system and effective algorithms for soccer video segmentation. The output, about whether the ball is in play, reveals high-level structure of the content. The first step is to classify each sample frame into 3 kinds of view using a unique domain-specific feature, grass-area-ratio. Here the grass value and classification(More)
In this paper, we present algorithms for parsing the structure of produced soccer programs. The problem is important in the context of a personalized video streaming and browsing system. While prior work focuses on the detection of special events such as goals or corner kicks, this paper is concerned with generic structural elements of the game. We begin by(More)
In this paper, we present statistical techniques for parsing the structure of produced soccer programs. The problem is important for applications such as personalized video streaming and browsing systems, in which video are segmented into different states and important states are selected based on user preferences. While prior work focuses on the detection(More)
We study the problem of semantic concept-based query expansion and re-ranking for multimedia retrieval. In particular, we explore the utility of a fixed lexicon of visual semantic concepts for automatic multimedia retrieval and re-ranking purposes. In this paper, we propose several new approaches for query expansion, in which textual keywords, visual(More)
The increasing photorealism for computer graphics has made computer graphics a convincing form of image forgery. Therefore, classifying photographic images and photorealistic computer graphics has become an important problem for image forgery detection. In this paper, we propose a new geometry-based image model, motivated by the physical image generation(More)
We propose Semantic Model Vectors, an intermediate level semantic representation, as a basis for modeling and detecting complex events in unconstrained real-world videos, such as those from YouTube. The Semantic Model Vectors are extracted using a set of discriminative semantic classifiers, each being an ensemble of SVM models trained from thousands of(More)
Platforms such as Twitter have provided researchers with ample opportunities to analytically study social phenomena. There are however, significant computational challenges due to the enormous rate of production of new information: researchers are therefore, often forced to analyze a judiciously selected “sample” of the data. Like other social media(More)
