About this book


This is one of the very few books focused on analysis of multimedia data and newly emerging multimedia applications with an emphasis on security. The main objective of this project was to assemble as much research coverage as possible related to the field by defining the latest innovative technologies and providing the most comprehensive list of research references. The book includes sixteen chapters highlighting current concepts, issues and emerging technologies. Distinguished scholars from many prominent research institutions around the world contribute to the book. The book covers various aspects, including not only some fundamental knowledge and the latest key techniques, but also typical applications and open issues. Topics covered include dangerous or abnormal event detection, interaction recognition, person identification based on multiple traits, audiovisual biometric person authentication and liveness verification, emerging biometric technologies, sensitive information filtering for teleradiology, detection of nakedness in images, audio forensics, steganalysis, media content tracking authentication and illegal distributor identification through watermarking and content-based copy detection. We believe that the comprehensive coverage of diverse disciplines in the field of intelligent multimedia analysis for security applications will contribute to a better understanding of all topics, research, and discoveries in this emerging and evolving field and that the included contributions will be instrumental in the expansion of the corresponding body of knowledge, making this book a reference source of information. It is our sincere hope that this publication and its great amount of information and research will assist our research colleagues, faculty members and students, and organization decision makers in enhancing their understanding for the concepts, issues, problems, trends, challenges and opportunities related to this research field. Perhaps this book will even inspire its readers to contribute to the current discoveries in this immense field.
