If Information Retrieval (IR) on the web is dominated by systems earning ranking functions from log data, standard ad hoc IR is largely dominated by probabilistic systems with few parameters to set, as Okapi, the language models or the Divergence from Randomness models. These latter models are...

Citizen sensor networks are open information systems in which members of the public act as information providers. The information distributed in such networks ranges from observations of events (e.g. noise measurements or monitoring of environmental parameters) to probabilistic estimates (e.g....

In a seminal paper in 1997 Lin and Reiter introduced the notion of progression for basic action theories in the situation calculus. The idea is to replace the initial knowledge base by a new set of sentences which reflect the changes due to an action. Their definition has the intended properties...

Larry S. Davis' talk will cover recent work on the acquisition and application of contextual models for object and action recognition. For object recognition, I will discuss how fine grained contextual models that capture geometric and topological relations between objects in pictures can lead to...

Indoor localization is considered to be a key aspect of future context-aware, ubiquitous and pervasive systems, while Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are expected to constitute the critical infrastructure in order to sense and interact with the environment surrounding them. In the context of...

The presentation is focusing on the research conducted on semantic information extraction from events. The research focuses on exploring techniques used for human behavior recognition from video sequences and creating complete and solid systems for anomaly detection observed in the video, human...

Hierarchies are becoming increasingly popular for the organization of text documents, particularly on the Web. Web directories, such as the Yahoo! Directory and the Dmoz Directory, are typical examples. Along with their widespread use, comes the need for automated classification of new documents to...

The talk will present the results of our thesis where we studied the stages for the processing and mainly the recognition of handwritten documents. Processing consists of pre-processing for image enhancement; and segmentation for detecting first text lines, then words and finally characters. At the...
