IEEE TMM Article

The vector graphics with gradient mesh can be attributed to their compactness and scalability; however, they tend to fall short when it comes to real-time editing due to a lack of real-time rasterization and an efficient editing tool for image details. In this paper, we encode global manipulation geometries and local image details within a hybrid vector structure, using parametric patches and detailed features for localized and parallelized thin-plate spline interpolation in order to achieve good compressibility, interactive expressibility, and editability.

The analysis of sound information is helpful for audio surveillance, multimedia information retrieval, audio tagging, and forensic applications. Environmental audio scene recognition (EASR) and sound event recognition (SER) for audio surveillance are challenging tasks due to the presence of multiple sound sources, background noises, and the existence of overlapping or polyphonic contexts.

Smoke detection plays an important role in industrial safety warning systems and fire prevention. Due to the complicated changes in the shape, texture, and color of smoke, identifying the smoke from a given image still remains a substantial challenge, and this has accordingly aroused a considerable amount of research attention recently.

We propose an approach for digitally altering people's outfits in images. Given images of a person and a desired clothing style, our method generates a new clothing item image. The new item displays the color and pattern of the desired style while geometrically mimicking the person's original item. Through superimposition, the altered image is made to look as if the person is wearing the new item.

In this paper, a Hessian matrix based multi-focus image fusion method is proposed. First, the integral map is introduced for fast compute the Hessian matrix of source images at different scales, and the multi-scale Hessian matrix of source image is obtained. Second, the multi-scale Hessian matrix is used to decompose each source image into two kinds of regions: the feature and background regions.

To improve the parallel processing capability of video coding, the emerging high efficiency video coding (HEVC) standard introduces two parallel techniques, i.e., Wavefront Parallel Processing (WPP) and  Tiles , to make it much more parallel-friendly than its predecessors. However, these two techniques are designed to explore coarse-grained parallelism in HEVC encoding on multicore Central Processing Unit (CPU) platforms.

The good generalization performance of conventional pattern classifiers often relies on the size of training data labeled by costly human labor. These days, publicly available web resources grow explosively, and this allows us to easily obtain abundant and cheap web data. Yet, web data are usually not as cooperative as human labeled data. In this paper, we explore the use of web text data to aid image classification.

Recently, a novel uncoded (pseudoanalog) scheme called SoftCast is proposed for wireless video transmission, which eliminates the cliff effect of the state-of-the-art source-channel coding based schemes and achieves linear quality transition within a wide range of channel signal-to-noise ratio. Therefore, SoftCast-like uncoded and hybrid transmission has become an attractive research issue for natural 2-D video. However, very few studies focus on the SoftCast-based wireless transmission of the 3-D video (3DV) currently.

Generating images via a generative adversarial network (GAN) has attracted much attention recently. However, most of the existing GAN-based methods can only produce low-resolution images of limited quality. Directly generating high-resolution images using GANs is nontrivial, and often produces problematic images with incomplete objects.

The scalable video coding extensions of the High Efficient Video Coding (HEVC) standard (SHVC) have adopted a new quadtree-structured coding unit (CU). The SHVC test model (SHM) needs to test seven intermode sizes and one intramode size at depth levels of “0,” “1,” “2,” and four intermode sizes and two intramode sizes at a depth level of “3” for interframe CUs.
