2012 ACM Transactions on Multimedia Computing, Communications, and Applications (TOMCCAP)  
Discovery of such relational structures enables us to understand the semantics of human activity and has applications in content organization, recommendation algorithms, and exploratory social network  ...  ________________________________________________________________________ In this article, we present a novel algorithm to discover multi-relational structures from social media streams.  ...  The tags reflect photographic, style (e.g., -blackandwhite‖), camera brand (e.g., -konica‖), or the spatial context of the photos (e.g. -brasil‖ in A1, -zeiss‖ in A3, -street‖ in A4, etc.).  ...

Exploiting Social Networks for Recommendation in Online Image Sharing Systems

Adam Rae
This thesis aims to demonstrate the distinct and so far little explored value of knowledge derived from social interaction data within large web-scale image sharing systems like Flickr, Picasa Web, Facebook  ...  I have shown how such systems can be significantly improved through personalisation that takes into account the social context of users by modelling their interactions by mining data, building and evaluating  ...  I realised I had been on a trajectory throughout my education, aiming for this particular milestone and that it felt natural to pursue what would (I hoped) be a rewarding experience.  ...

Photographic Mediation as a Mode of Production: Investigating the Agency of Commercial Institutions in Contemporary Vernacular Photography

Adam Bales
Under these circumstances, it becomes all the more vital that we recognize the role of commercial actors in shaping not only our photographic apparatus, but also our ways of being in, and relating to,  ...  However, commercial institutions have always played a vital role in shaping the meaning and matter of vernacular photography, producing the extended network of devices and protocols through which photographic  ...  Key to the efficacy of a feature descriptor in this context is that it is invariant to transformations in scale, rotation and illumination; images of brands in social media rarely show the branded product  ...

Mining, Modeling and Predicting Mobility

Mohamed Kafsi
This would have applications in scenarios that study dynamics on graphs such as information propagation on social networks.  ...  We preprocessed the tags associated with these photos by first filtering them using a basic stoplist of numbers, camera brands (e.g., Nikon, Canon), and application names (e.g Flickr, Instagram), and then  ...  data, such as speed and distance, and the need to compress mobility traces in order to allow for its storage, computation and display.  ...

Data-driven approaches for interactive appearance editing [article]

Hoang Chuong Nguyen, Universität Des Saarlandes, Universität Des Saarlandes
The arithmetic and bandwidth cost for this evaluation is linear in the number of coefficients and can be substantial.  ...  Our proposed techniques allow casual users to achieve high-quality editing by interactively exploring the manipulations without the need to understand the underlying physical models of appearance.  ...  With the advancement of the Internet technology, in recent years, more and more content is created and shared everyday, e. g., images on photo-sharing websites (e. g., Flickr) and online social networks  ...
