This paper suggests a method for multiclass learning with many classes by simultaneously learning shared characteristics common to the classes, and predictors for the classes in terms of these characteristics. We cast this as a convex optimization problem, using <i>trace-norm</i> regularization and study gradient-based optimization both for the linear case(More)
— In this paper, we propose a method for detecting and precisely segmenting repeated sections of broadcast streams. This method allows advertisements to be removed and replaced with new ads in redistributed television material. The detection stage starts from acoustic matches and validates the hypothesized matches using the visual channel. Finally, the(More)
We describe a general framework for online multiclass learning based on the notion of hypothesis sharing. In our framework sets of classes are associated with hypotheses. Thus, all classes within a given set share the same hypothesis. This framework includes as special cases commonly used constructions for multiclass categorization such as allocating a(More)
A new technique provides accurate, efficient ad detection for online TV rebroadcasts. A s online television grows in popularity, providers are seeking cost-effective ways to replace original advertisements in rebroadcasts with new ads that are not only fresher but that can target individual viewers' interests and preferences. Alternatively, completely(More)
This paper describes mass personalization, a framework for combining mass media with a highly personalized Web-based experience. We introduce four applications for mass personalization: personalized content layers, ad hoc social communities, real-time popularity ratings and virtual media library services. Using the ambient audio originating from a(More)
