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.

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.
