Description

Multimedia represents information in novel and varied formats. One of the most prevalent examples of continuous media is video. Extracting underlying data from these videos can be an arduous task. From video indexing, surveillance, and mining, complex computational applications are required to process this data.

Intelligent Analysis of Multimedia Information is a pivotal reference source for the latest scholarly research on the implementation of innovative techniques to a broad spectrum of multimedia applications by presenting emerging methods in continuous media processing and manipulation. This book offers a fresh perspective for students and researchers of information technology, media professionals, and programmers.

  • Particle Swarm Optimization

Reviews and Testimonials

Researchers in information technology and related disciplines introduce new ways to analyze multimedia information using intelligent approaches. Their topics include theoretical concepts and technical aspects of image segmentation, the retrieval of multimedia information using content-based image retrieval techniques, Indian river watershed image analysis using a hybrid fuzzy-cellular automata approach, detecting gradual transitions in videos: approaches and applications, integrating different analytical concepts on multimedia contents in service of intelligent knowledge extraction, and digital watermarking: the technical art of hiding a message.

– Protoview Reviews

The main strength of this book is that it establishes the missing link between the research available in this relevant field and forthcoming trends. The book is well organized such that the readers can easily grasp the different facets of multimedia information analysis in regards to different forms of multimedia information. Highly Recommended.
