This book provides the reader with the knowledge necessary for comprehension of the field of Intelligent Audio Analysis. It firstly introduces standard methods and discusses the typical Intelligent Audio Analysis chain going from audio data to audio features to audio recognition. Further, an introduction to audio source separation, and enhancement and robustness are given. After the introductory parts, the book shows several applications for the three types of audio: speech, music, and general sound. Each task is shortly introduced, followed by a description of the specific data and methods applied, experiments and results, and a conclusion for this specific task. The books provides benchmark results and standardized test-beds for a broader range of audio analysis tasks. The main focus thereby lies on the parallel advancement of realism in audio analysis, as too often today’s results are overly optimistic owing to idealized testing conditions, and it serves to stimulate synergies arising from transfer of methods and leads to a holistic audio analysis.

This volume comprises eight well-versed contributed chapters devoted to report the latest findings on the intelligent approaches to multimedia data analysis. Multimedia data is a combination of different discrete and continuous content forms like text, audio, images, videos, animations and interactional data. At least a single continuous media in the transmitted information generates multimedia information. Due to these different types of varieties, multimedia data present varied degrees of uncertainties and imprecision, which cannot be easy to deal by the conventional computing paradigm. Soft computing technologies are quite efficient to handle the imprecision and uncertainty of the multimedia data and they are flexible enough to process the real-world information. Proper analysis of multimedia data finds wide applications in medical diagnosis, video surveillance, text annotation etc. This volume is intended to be used as a reference by undergraduate and post graduate students of the disciplines of computer science, electronics and telecommunication, information science and electrical engineering. THE SERIES: FRONTIERS IN COMPUTATIONAL INTELLIGENCE The series Frontiers In Computational Intelligence is envisioned to provide comprehensive coverage and understanding of cutting edge research in computational intelligence. It intends to augment the scholarly discourse on all topics relating to the advances in artifi cial life and machine learning in the form of metaheuristics, approximate reasoning, and robotics. Latest research fi ndings are coupled with applications to varied domains of engineering and computer sciences. This field is steadily growing especially with the advent of novel machine learning algorithms being applied to different domains of engineering and technology. The series brings together leading researchers that intend to continue to advance the fi eld and create a broad knowledge about the most recent state of the art.

Multimedia Mining: A Highway to Intelligent Multimedia Documents brings together experts in digital media content analysis, state-of-art data mining and knowledge discovery in multimedia database systems, knowledge engineers and domain experts from diverse applied disciplines. Multimedia documents are ubiquitous and often required, if not essential, in many applications today. This phenomenon has made multimedia documents widespread and extremely large. There are tools for managing and searching within these collections, but the need for tools to extract hidden useful knowledge embedded within multimedia objects is becoming pressing and central for many decision-making applications. The tools needed today are tools for discovering relationships between objects or segments within multimedia document components, such as classifying images based on their content, extracting patterns in sound, categorizing speech and music, and recognizing and tracking objects in video streams.

Soft computing represents a collection of techniques, such as neural networks, evolutionary computation, fuzzy logic, and probabilistic reasoning. As - posed to conventional "hard" computing, these techniques tolerate impre- sion and uncertainty, similar to human beings. In the recent years, successful applications of these powerful methods have been published in many dis- plines in numerous journals, conferences, as well as the excellent books in this book series on Studies in Fuzziness and Soft Computing. This volume is dedicated to recent novel applications of soft computing in multimedia processing. The book is composed of 21 chapters written by experts in their respective fields, addressing various important and timely problems in multimedia computing such as content analysis, indexing and retrieval, recognition and compression, processing and filtering, etc. In the chapter authored by Guan, Muneesawang, Lay, Amin, and Lee, a radial basis function network with Laplacian mixture model is employed to perform image and video retrieval. D. Androutsos, P. Androutsos, Plataniotis, and Venetsanopoulos investigate color image indexing and retrieval within a small-world framework. Wu and Yap develop a framework of fuzzy relevance feedback to model the uncertainty of users' subjective perception in image retrieval.

Belonging to the wider academic field of computer vision, videoanalytics has aroused a phenomenal surge of interest since thecurrent millennium. Video analytics is intended to solve theproblem of the incapability of exploiting video streams in realtime for the purpose of detection or anticipation. It involvesanalyzing the videos using algorithms that detect and track objectsof interest over time and that indicate the presence of events orsuspect behavior involving these objects. The aims of this book are to highlight the operational attempts ofvideo analytics, to identify possible driving forces behindpotential evolutions in years to come, and above all to present thestate of the art and the technological hurdles which have yet to beovercome. The need for video surveillance is introduced through twomajor applications (the security of rail transportation systems anda posteriori investigation). The characteristics of the videosconsidered are presented through the cameras which enable captureand the compression methods which allow us to transport and storethem. Technical topics are then discussed – the analysis ofobjects of interest (detection, tracking and recognition),“high-level” video analysis, which aims to give asemantic interpretation of the observed scene (events, behaviors,types of content). The book concludes with the problem ofperformance evaluation.

This book presents the methods, tools and techniques that arecurrently being used to recognise (automatically) the affect,emotion, personality and everything else beyond linguistics(‘paralinguistics’) expressed by or embedded in humanspeech and language. It is the first book to provide such a systematic survey ofparalinguistics in speech and language processing. The technologydescribed has evolved mainly from automatic speech and speakerrecognition and processing, but also takes into account recentdevelopments within speech signal processing, machine intelligenceand data mining. Moreover, the book offers a hands-on approach by integratingactual data sets, software, and open-source utilities which willmake the book invaluable as a teaching tool and similarly usefulfor those professionals already in the field. Key features: Provides an integrated presentation of basic research (inphonetics/linguistics and humanities) with state-of-the-artengineering approaches for speech signal processing and machineintelligence. Explains the history and state of the art of all of thesub-fields which contribute to the topic of computationalparalinguistics. C overs the signal processing and machine learning aspects ofthe actual computational modelling of emotion and personality andexplains the detection process from corpus collection to featureextraction and from model testing to system integration. Details aspects of real-world system integration includingdistribution, weakly supervised learning and confidencemeasures. Outlines machine learning approaches including static, dynamicand context‑sensitive algorithms for classification andregression. Includes a tutorial on freely available toolkits, such as theopen-source ‘openEAR’ toolkit for emotion and affectrecognition co-developed by one of the authors, and a listing ofstandard databases and feature sets used in the field to allow forimmediate experimentation enabling the reader to build an emotiondetection model on an existing corpus.
