Tagging in online social networks is very popular these days, as it facilitates search and retrieval of multimedia content. However, noisy and spam annotations often make it difficult to perform an efficient search. Users may make mistakes in tagging and irrelevant tags and content may be maliciously added for advertisement or self-promotion. This article(More)
In the past few years sharing photos within social networks has become very popular. In order to make these huge collections easier to explore, images are usually tagged with representative keywords such as persons, events, objects, and locations. In order to speed up the time consuming tag annotation process, tags can be propagated based on the similarity(More)
Spatial region (image) segmentation is a fundamental step for many computer vision applications. Although many methods have been proposed, less work has been done in developing suitable evaluation methodologies for comparing different approaches. The main problem of general purpose segmentation evaluation is the dilemma between objectivity and generality.(More)
Over the last few years, social network systems have greatly increased users' involvement in online content creation and annotation. Since such systems usually need to deal with a large amount of multimedia data, it becomes desirable to realize an interactive service that minimizes tedious and time-consuming manual annotation. In this paper, we propose an(More)
In this paper, we consider the challenging problem of object duplicate detection and localization. Several applications require efficient object duplicate detection methods, such as automatic video and image tagging, video surveillance, and high level image or video search. In this paper, a novel graph-based approach for 3D object duplicate detection in(More)
We demonstrate a novel multimedia system that continuously indexes videos and enables real-time search using images, with a broad range of potential applications. Television shows are recorded and indexed continuously, and iconic images from recent events are discovered automatically. Users can query an uploaded image or an image in the web. When a result(More)
Several applications require accurate and efficient object duplicate detection methods, such as automatic video and image tag propagation, video surveillance, and high level image or video search. In this paper, we explore the limits of our recently proposed graph-based object duplicate detection method. The dependency of the performance with respect to the(More)
In this paper, we analyze our graph-based approach for 2D and 3D object duplicate detection in still images. A graph model is used to represent the 3D spatial information of the object based on the features extracted from training images so that an explicit and complex 3D object modeling is avoided. Therefore, improved performance can be achieved in(More)
We demonstrate EigenNews, a personalized television news system. Upon visiting the EigenNews website, a user is shown a variety of news videos which have been automatically selected based on her individual preferences. These videos are extracted from 16 continually recorded television programs using a multimodal segmentation algorithm. Relevant metadata for(More)
