The objective of multiple description coding (MDC) is to encode a source into multiple bitstreams supporting multiple quality levels of decoding. In this paper, we only consider the two-description case, where the requirement is that a high-quality reconstruction should be decodable from the two bitstreams together, while lower, but still acceptable,(More)
This paper proposes an adaptive color-guided autoregressive (AR) model for high quality depth recovery from low quality measurements captured by depth cameras. We observe and verify that the AR model tightly fits depth maps of generic scenes. The depth recovery task is formulated into a minimization of AR prediction errors subject to measurement(More)
M ultimedia content analysis refers to the computerized understanding of the semantic meanings of a multimedia document, such as a video sequence with an accompanying audio track. As we enter the digital multimedia information era, tools that enable such automated analysis are becoming indispensable to be able to efficiently access, digest, and retrieve(More)
Upon recognition of viral infection, RIG-I and Helicard recruit a newly identified adapter termed Cardif, which induces type I interferon (IFN)-mediated antiviral responses through an unknown mechanism. Here, we demonstrate that TRAF3, like Cardif, is required for type I interferon production in response to intracellular double-stranded RNA. Cardif-mediated(More)
—Enabling video transport over ad hoc networks is more challenging than over other wireless networks. The wireless links in an ad hoc network are highly error prone and can go down frequently because of node mobility, interference, channel fading, and the lack of infrastructure. However, the mesh topology of ad hoc networks implies that it is possible to(More)
We propose multiple description (MD) video coders which use motion compensated predictions. Our MD video coders utilize MD transform coding and three separate prediction paths at the encoder, to mimic the three possible scenarios at the decoder: both descriptions received or either of the single descriptions received. We provide three different algorithms(More)
A trust and reputation mechanism is a mechanism using consumers' feedbacks to identify good services from bad ones. Compared with other approaches, it has more advantages in solving the selection problem for web services. The paper proposes a typology to classify trust and reputation systems using the three criteria, centralized or decentralized, person or(More)
