Multimodal video database modeling, querying and browsing

Durak, N
Yazıcı, Adnan
In this paper, a multimodal video indexing and retrieval system, MMVIRS, is presented. MMVIRS models the auditory, visual, and textual sources of video collections from a semantic perspective. Besides multimodality, our model is constituted on semantic hierarchies that enable us to access the video from different semantic levels. MMVIRS has been implemented with data annotation, querying and browsing parts. In the annotation part, metadata information and video semantics are extracted in hierarchical ways. In the querying part, semantic queries, spatial queries, regional queries, spatio-temporal queries, and temporal queries have been processed over video collections using the proposed model. In the browsing parts, video collections are navigated using category information, visual and auditory hierarchies.


Feasible Local Content Representation For Image İn Video Search On Large Video Collection
Özkan, Savaş; Esen, Ersin; Akar, Gözde (null; 2016-05-16)
In this paper, we tackle content-based image-in-video search on large video archive. Particularly in this problem, the computation cost of a proposed method is another important parameter that should be considered alongside of the success rate achieved due to the high volume of data. With our proposed method in this paper, content representation of multimedia data is achieved quite fast compared to other local approaches. Additionally, approximately %16 improvement is introduced at the success rate with res...
Multi-objective decision making using fuzzy discrete event systems: A mobile robot example
Boutalis, Yiannis; Schmidt, Klaus Verner (2010-09-29)
In this paper, we propose an approach for the multi-objective control of sampled data systems that can be modeled as fuzzy discrete event systems (FDES). In our work, the choice of a fuzzy system representation is justified by the assumption of a controller realization that depends on various potentially imprecise sensor measurements. Our approach consists of three basic steps that are performed in each sampling instant. First, the current fuzzy state of the system is determined by a sensor evaluation. Seco...
Hierarchical and decentralized multitasking control of discrete event systems
Schmidt, Klaus Verner; Cury, José E. R. (2007-12-01)
In this paper, a hierarchical and decentralized approach for composite discrete-event systems (DES) that have to fulfill multiple tasks is elaborated. Colored marking generators that can distinguish classes of tasks are used as the system model, and a colored abstraction procedure as well as sufficient conditions for nonblocking and hierarchically consistent control are developed. It is shown that the computational complexity for supervisor computation is reduced. A flexible manufacturing system example dem...
Similarity search in protein sequence databases using metric access methods
Cetintas, Ahmet; Sacan, Ahmet; Toroslu, İsmail Hakkı (2013-09-13)
The rapid increase in the size of biological sequence data owing to the advancements in high-throughput sequencing techniques, and the increased complexity of hypothesis-driven exploration of this data requiring massive number of similarity queries call for new approaches for managing sequence databases and analysis of this information. The metric space representation for sequences is suitable for similarity search and provides several sophisticated metric-indexing techniques. In this work, we provide a tho...
Representing temporal knowledge in connectionist expert systems
Alpaslan, Ferda Nur (1996-09-27)
This paper introduces a new temporal neural networks model which can be used in connectionist expert systems. Also, a Variation of backpropagation algorithm, called the temporal feedforward backpropagation algorithm is introduced as a method for training the neural network. The algorithm was tested using training examples extracted from a medical expert system. A series of experiments were carried out using the temporal model and the temporal backpropagation algorithm. The experiments indicated that the alg...
