Tailoring digital audio-visual content to its users

Definition

Multimedia personalization is tailoring digital audiovisual content to its users, based on personal details or characteristics they provide. It allows a content provider to adapt specific multimedia content in accordance with individual standards, tastes and preferences. For example, movies can be personalized based on genre, cast, director, etc.

Introduction

During the last decade, the exceptional growth of ubiquitous communication technologies, side by side to the breathtaking increase of available digital multimedia content, has allowed access to personalized multimedia content anytime, anywhere. This growth comes with an increasing heterogeneity of client devices, as well as user preferences. The client devices range from traditional Personal Computers (PCs) to enhanced digital camera mobile phones and Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs) and all of them facilitate quite different device profiles in terms of...

Notes

  1. 1.

    Given a universe V, a crisp set S of concepts on V is described by a membership function μS:V→{0,1}. The crisp set S is defined as S = {si}, i = 1,..,N. A fuzzy set F on S is described by a membership function μF:S→[0,1].

  2. 2.

    Hierarchical clustering methods are divided into agglomerative and divisive. The former are more widely studied and applied, as well as more robust and therefore are followed herein.
