2004 2004 IEEE International Conference on Communications (IEEE Cat. No.04CH37577)  
We support our conjecture with a simulation of a realistic system, and propose a metric following the idea of our conjecture to assess the goodness of movie assignment in the system.  ...  Little and Venkatesh conjectured that, for an interactive VoD system with a single random trial resource selection scheme, the blocking probability of a user's request is minimized when the overall movie  ...  Zukerman were visiting the Department of Electronic Engineering, City University of Hong Kong.  ...

Movie genre classification via scene categorization

Howard Zhou, Tucker Hermans, Asmita V. Karandikar, James M. Rehg
2010 Proceedings of the international conference on Multimedia - MM '10  
This paper presents a method for movie genre categorization of movie trailers, based on scene categorization.  ...  This allows us to represent trailers using a bag-of-visual-words (bovw) model with shot classes as vocabularies.  ...  However, we think color plays an important role in conveying the mood of a scene.  ...

Losers and finders

Mike Leggett
2005 Proceedings of the 5th conference on Creativity & cognition - C&C '05  
It proposes an approach to indexing audio-visual media utilising a time-space representational system, drawing upon a real-world time-space representation as the taxonomy of the indexing procedure.  ...  The contemporary burgeoning usage of digital movies, photos, audio and text, their distribution through networks both electronic and physical will be considered in the context of a convergence of these  ...  Russell Crowe portrayal of the schitzophrenic John Nash in the movie 'A Beautiful Mind' provides an image of this process in its pathological state.

Recommender system for contextual advertising in IPTV scenarios

Roberto Konow, Wayman Tan, Luis Loyola, Javier Pereira, Nelson Baloian
2010 The 2010 14th International Conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work in Design  
Since only a small portion of the advertising links can be included in a movie, these must be selected carefully.  ...  The proposal arises from a real case of a Japanese company planning to add advertisement to its On-Demand IPTV services.  ...  THE PROPOSED RECOMMENDER SYSTEM The main hypothesis behind this work is that people with similar preferences for a certain movie genre and similar profile characteristics may have a similar response (negative  ...

From stars to galaxies

Matteo Magnani, Ira Assent
2013 Proceedings of the 16th International Conference on Extending Database Technology - EDBT '13  
We propose efficient algorithms to implement this operator and test them on real and synthetic data, showing that they outperform a direct SQL implementation of up to two orders of magnitude.  ...  However, it has only been defined with respect to single records, while one fundamental functionality of database query languages is aggregation, enabling operations over sets of records.  ...  For example, assume that a very good director who has directed a large number of popular and high quality movies comes out with a very bad movie.  ...

Local Ensemble across Multiple Sources for Collaborative Filtering

Jing Zheng, Fuzhen Zhuang, Chuan Shi
2017 Proceedings of the 2017 ACM on Conference on Information and Knowledge Management - CIKM '17  
In this paper, we propose a novel LOcal EN semble framework across multiple source domains for collaborative filtering (called LOEN for short), where weights of multiple sources for each missing rating  ...  Compared with the previous TCF methods, LOEN does not require overlapping data and considers the divergence of sources through exploiting the local structures of ratings, which allows LOEN to be more general  ...  Experiments on two real datasets illustrate the superiority of LOEN compared with the-state-of-art methods.  ...

Semantic context detection based on hierarchical audio models

Wen-Huang Cheng, Wei-Ta Chu, Ja-Ling Wu
2003 Proceedings of the 5th ACM SIGMM international workshop on Multimedia information retrieval - MIR '03  
In this paper, we propose a novel hierarchical approach that models the statistical characteristics of several audio events, over a time series, to accomplish semantic context detection.  ...  With this framework, we bridge the gaps between low-level features and the semantic contexts that last in a time series.  ...  The number of HMM model states of each event is decided by the clustering algorithm proposed in [1] .  ...
