The singer's information is essential in organizing, browsing and retrieving music collections. In this paper, a system for automatic singer identification is developed which recognizes the singer of a song by analyzing the music signal. Meanwhile, songs which are similar in terms of singer's voice are clustered. The proposed scheme follows the framework of(More)
Automatic clothes search in consumer photos is not a trivial problem as photos are usually taken under completely uncontrolled realistic imaging conditions. In this paper, a novel framework is presented to tackle this issue by leveraging low-level features (e.g., color) and high-level features (attributes) of clothes. First, a content-based image(More)
People are often the most important subjects in photos, and the ability of finding photos of a particular person easily and quickly in an image collection is highly desired. In this paper, we present a face clustering system which automatically groups photos into clusters, with each cluster containing photos of the same person. This is done based on an(More)
Photo or video mosaicing have drawn a lot of interests in the research field in the past years. Most of the existing work, however, focuses on how to match the images or video frames. This paper presents techniques to handle some practical issues when generating panorama photos. We have found from the experiments that a simple translational motion model(More)
In this paper, we propose an approach to automatically estimate relationship among people in a family image collection based on results from face analyses technologies including automated face recognition and clustering, demographic assessment, and face similarity measurement, as well as contextual information such as people co-appearance, people's relative(More)
Face recognition technology presents an opportunity in computer automation to help people better organize their personal photo collections. However, the robustness of the technology needs to improve and how users interact with face clusters needs to go beyond the traditional file folder metaphor. We designed a visualization called face bubble that supports(More)
Existing techniques to automatically create image thumbnail(s) for videos are mostly based on low-level feature analysis of the video frames, such as color and motion information. However, these approaches do not contain semantic models of the underlying theme of the video, and as a result, the selected frames may not be semantically representative. To(More)
