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 will(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)
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)
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 websites become popular throughout the world. This(More)
Subjective and sentiment analysis have gained considerable attention recently. Most of the resources and systems built so far are done for English. The need for designing systems for other languages is increasing. This paper surveys different ways used for building systems for subjective and sentiment analysis for languages other than English. There are(More)
Low-cost, lightweight wearable cameras let us record (or 'lifelog') our lives from a 'first-person' perspective for purposes ranging from fun to therapy. But they also capture private information that people may not want to be recorded, especially if images are stored in the cloud or visible to other people. For example, recent studies suggest that computer(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the effectiveness of orthodontic extrusion of nonrestorable teeth prior to implant placement for improving the alveolar bone and gingival characteristics of implant recipient sites. MATERIALS AND METHODS Electronic database searches of the following databases were conducted with the help of a senior health sciences librarian:(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)
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)
