automatic analysis may have many applications such as smart human-computer interactions or multimedia indexing. Main difficulties for an efficient speech emotion classification reside in complex emotional class borders leading to necessity of appropriate audio feature selection. While current work in the literature only relies on classical frequency and(More)
In this paper, we propose an assessment method of agreement between fuzzy sets, called fuzzy Kappa which is deduced from the concept of Cohen's Kappa statistic. In fuzzy case, the Cohen's Kappa coefficient can be calculated generally by transforming the fuzzy sets into some crisp a-cut subsets. While the proposed fuzzy Kappa allows to directly evaluate an(More)
The Modified Discrete Cosine Transform (MDCT) is widely used in audio signals compression, but mostly limited to representing audio signals. This is because the MDCT is a real transform: Phase information is missing and spectral power varies frame to frame even for pure sine waves. We have a key observation concerning the structure of the MDCT spectrum of a(More)
As bearer of high level semantics, audio signal is being more and more used in content-based multimedia retrieval. In this paper, we investigate the ball hit detection for sports games and propose a novel approach to detect ball hits. By employing Energy Peak Detection (EPD) and Mel Frequency Cepstral Coefficient-based (MFCC-based) Refinement (MBR), high(More)
This paper proposes a sinusoidal model based on modified sinusoidal analysis and synthesis for the error concealment of lost frames. The parameters of the sinusoidal model are adjusted according to the property of the audio signals. It is applied to MPEG-2 AAC decoder for an error concealment of decoder based only. An analysis and synthesis of the windowed(More)
A framework of fuzzy information fusion is proposed in this paper to automatically segment tumor areas of human brain from multispectral magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) such as T1-weighted, T2-weighted and proton density (PD) images. A priori knowledge about tumors described by radiology experts for different types of MRI are very helpful to guide a(More)
An information fusion based fuzzy segmentation method applied to Magnetic Resonance Images (MRI) is proposed in this paper. It can automatically extract the normal and abnormal tissues of human brain from multispectral images such as T1-weighted, T2-weighted and Proton Density (PD) feature images. Fuzzy models of normal tissues corresponding to three MRI(More)
This paper deals with speech emotion analysis within the context of increasing awareness of the wide application potential of affective computing. Unlike most works in the literature which mainly rely on classical frequency and energy based features along with a single global classifier for emotion recognition, we propose in this paper some new harmonic and(More)
An integrated photonic reservoir computing (RC) based on hierarchical time-multiplexing structure is proposed by numerical simulations. A micro-ring array (MRA) is employed as a typical time delay implementation of RC. At the output port of the MRA, a secondary time-multiplexing is achieved by multi-mode interference (MMI) splitter and delay line array.(More)
