Graph Theory Learning
Label propagation, clustering, classification. Specifically as applied to multimedia annotation and social media data.
Collaborative Geo and Text-Tagging of Images
Tag suggestion for use with geo-tagged Flickr data. Work presented at CIVR 2009, ICME 2009 Invited Talk, ACM MIR 2008 Brave New Topics. Web interface.
Concepts: very large database management, web development, image search and retrieval, natural scene analysis, geographic footprints of abstract terms, multimodal learning, multimedia annotation, semantic knowledge extraction, graph theory learning.
Video Annotation Through Search and Mining
Patent pending. Use of mining to filter and extend existing tags for video, in automatic, unsupervised fashion.
Concepts: multimodal learning, video search and retrieval, multimedia annotation, graph theory learning.
Search and retrieval of concepts in videos using text, image, and video examples. Participation in TRECVID 2007.
Creation of video summaries based on a user-attention model to find most salient 4% of original. Presented at ACM MM TRECVID Video Summarization workshop.
Concepts: video search and retrieval, feature selection, user attention modelling, multimodal learning and fusion.
Compact video "signature" creation that allows for speedy similar and duplicate video retrieval, presented at SPIE 2008.
Concepts: feature selection, video search and retrieval, dimensionality reduction.
Global News Visualization
Public installation that allows user-driven browsing of global news stories. Can be seen at UCSB's Davidson Library, and presented at SIGGRAPH 2007.
Concepts: document similarity and clustering, interactive spaces.
