—Cameras are now commonplace in our social and computing landscapes and embedded into consumer devices like smartphones and tablets. A new generation of wearable devices (such as Google Glass) will soon make 'first-person' cameras nearly ubiquitous, capturing vast amounts of imagery without deliberate human action. 'Lifelogging' devices and applications(More)
The popularity of social media websites like Flickr and Twitter has created enormous collections of user-generated content online. Latent in these content collections are observations of the world: each photo is a visual snapshot of what the world looked like at a particular point in time and space, for example, while each tweet is a textual expression of(More)
Studying relationships between keyword tags on social sharing websites has become a popular topic of research, both to improve tag suggestion systems and to discover connections between the concepts that the tags represent. Existing approaches have largely relied on tag co-occurrences. In this paper, we show how to find connections between tags by comparing(More)
Many people use multiple online and social computing platforms , and choose to share varying amounts of personal information about themselves depending on the context and type of site. For example, people may be willing to share personally-identifiable details (including their real name and date of birth) on a site like Facebook, but may withhold their(More)
INTRODUCTION Compression on the midface with nasal mask-delivered positive airway pressure (PAP) therapy in growing patients might contribute to midface retrusion. The objective of this study was to investigate the association between long-term PAP use and craniofacial morphologic pattern in children with persistent obstructive sleep apnea. METHODS Images(More)
Subjectivity and sentiment analysis (SSA) has recently gained considerable attention, but most of the resources and systems built so far are tailored to English and other Indo-European languages. The need for designing systems for other languages is increasing, especially as blogging and micro-blogging web-sites become popular throughout the world. This(More)
The area of Subjectivity and sentiment analysis (SSA) has been witnessing a flurry of novel research. However, only few attempts have been made to build SSA systems for the health domain. In the current study, we report efforts to partially bridge this gap. We present a new labeled corpus of professional articles collected from major Websites focused on the(More)
Captchas are frequently used on the modern world wide web to differentiate human users from automated bots by giving tests that are easy for humans to answer but difficult or impossible for algorithms. As artificial intelligence algorithms have improved, new types of Captchas have had to be developed. Recent work has proposed a new system called Avatar(More)
In the big data era, scalability has become a crucial requirement for any useful computational model. Probabilistic graphical models are very useful for mining and discovering data insights, but they are not scalable enough to be suitable for big data problems. Bayesian Networks particularly demonstrate this limitation when their data is represented using(More)
The billions of public photos on online social media sites contain a vast amount of latent visual information about the world. In this paper, we study the feasibility of observing the state of the natural world by recognizing specific types of scenes and objects in large-scale social image collections. More specifically, we study whether we can recreate(More)
