Although it has been observed that motion-compensated frame differences increase toward block boundaries and overlapped block motion compensation (OBMC) has been shown to provide reduced blocking artifacts as well as improved prediction accuracy, there is almost no satisfactory theoretical basis that clearly interprets the space-dependent characteristics of(More)
This paper proposes a stochastic approach to estimate the disparity field combined with line field. In the maximum a posteriori (MAP) method based on Markov random field (MRF) model, it is important to optimize and converge the Gibbs potential function corresponding to the perturbed disparity field. The proposed optimization method, stochastic diffusion,(More)

This paper proposes algorithms for analyzing Twitter messages. These algorithms play an important role in our 'Intelligence Circulation System', which provides several services for social TV. Twitter users often post messages about on-air TV programmes. The Intelligence Circulation System analyses these messages by using programme-related information and(More)
