About this book
Social Multimedia Signals is intended for those whose interest is to study the Social Web and develop automated tools to analyze it better. It is especially useful for researchers experienced with signal processing or multimedia analysis but have little exposure to social networks and social multimedia data. Those new to social multimedia should find the first chapters extremely useful to get a thorough look at how social data behaves. Conversely, social scientists should find useful the authors’ introduction to several signal processing techniques that can be employed to manipulate large-scale social data. For those new to signal processing, Chapters 5, 6 and 7 will get readers underway with basic techniques for signal processing from social multimedia. Later chapters include a significant amount of material on machine learning for those interested in intelligent algorithms for the Social Web. The authors wrote this book in a balanced fashion, for multimedia researchers, social scientists, network scientists, data scientists who work with social web data, and professionals who use social media on a daily basis.
