The increased use of video documents for multimedia-based applications has created a demand for strong video database support, including efficient methods for browsing, retrieving and classifying video data. Most solutions rely on visual information only, ignoring the rich source of the accompanying audio signal and texts. The semantic gap between mental and computational world is not yet surmounted by current algorithms and systems. Hence, there is a need for much research effort. Speech is the significant information that has a close connection to video contents. The closed caption text facilitates the acquisition of the video transcript. It provides visual text to describe dialogue and sound effects in video documents. In this study, two approaches are proposed; one for rating or classifying video scenes and the other for retrieving video scenes. Both approaches are based on the utilization of the Arabic closed caption text. Some techniques such as the Arabic light stemming and the Rocchio classifier are employed in the proposed approaches.

Research Paper (undergraduate) from the year 2011 in the subject Business economics - Banking, Stock Exchanges, Insurance, Accounting, grade: 2:0, Kingston University London, language: English, abstract: The research is covering the three major credit rating agencies(S&P, Moody's and Fitch) and their involvement in the 2008 economic crisisThe worldwide financial crisis has thrust credit rating agencies into the spotlight. The purpose of this study was to investigate the Credit Rating Agencies credibility after the crisis and the role they play in the global investment and financial markets. Another aim was to find out how the Credit Rating agencies were implicated in the crisis. Finally an explanation of the different aspects of rating process was given in the study. As an explanatory research, a case study analysis method was applied. This method was carried out by opting for a documentary analysis which relies highly on qualitative data. This research initiative currently under consideration can be seen as an effort to summarise the current reputation of Credit Rating Agencies and answer the question whether their credibility was affected or not. The results of the study discover that the credibility of Credit rating agencies was affected by the financial crisis, and this was due to its implication in this crisis by implying a non accurate methodology process for products assessment. The principal conclusion was that the credit rating agencies had a slight loss on t...

Diploma Thesis from the year 2006 in the subject Business economics - Banking, Stock Exchanges, Insurance, Accounting, grade: 1,3, Technical University of Darmstadt (Institut für Betriebswirtschaftslehre), 100 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Capital markets all over the world have undergone fundamental changes in the last twenty years and the most prominent developments have been: disintermediation and securitization, globalization and financial innovations. This process has been accelerated by worldwide deregulation tendencies, as well as progress and global proliferation of transactional data processing and transmission technology. The rational investor disposing of limited time and means for making a decision has been thus confronted with new challenges in a global environment dominated by almost infinite and very complex investment possibilities. Because of limited resources, private clients as well as institutional investors have been increasingly overwhelmed by internally assessing credit risk and have sought for additional evaluations from external specialists in order to build an opinion about the risk and return profile of an obligation . With this background, rating issued by major international rating agencies has come to play a key role in the making of investment decisions and in supervisory regulation. It is especially important in this context to understand the impact of rating changes on capital markets.The influence of rating changes...

McCann John J. The Art and Science of HDR Imaging

11879.3 руб.
Rendering High Dynamic Range (HDR) scenes on media with limited dynamic range began in the Renaissance whereby painters, then photographers, learned to use low-range spatial techniques to synthesize appearances, rather than to reproduce accurately the light from scenes. The Art and Science of HDR Imaging presents a unique scientific HDR approach derived from artists’ understanding of painting, emphasizing spatial information in electronic imaging. Human visual appearance and reproduction rendition of the HDR world requires spatial-image processing to overcome the veiling glare limits of optical imaging, in eyes and in cameras. Illustrated in full colour throughout, including examples of fine-art paintings, HDR photography, and multiple exposure scenes; this book uses techniques to study the HDR properties of entire scenes, and measures the range of light of scenes and the range that cameras capture. It describes how electronic image processing has been used to render HDR scenes since 1967, and examines the great variety of HDR algorithms used today. Showing how spatial processes can mimic vision, and render scenes as artists do, the book also: Gives the history of HDR from artists' spatial techniques to scientific image processing Measures and describes the limits of HDR scenes, HDR camera images, and the range of HDR appearances Offers a unique review of the entire family of Retinex image processing algorithms Describes the considerable overlap of HDR and Color Constancy: two sides of the same coin Explains the advantages of algorithms that replicate human vision in the processing of HDR scenes Provides extensive data to test algorithms and models of vision on an accompanying website www.wiley.com/go/mccannhdr

This study analyzes the determinants of rating changes and the variables' marginal effects on rating change probabilities. Based on the results, it presents transition matrices by computing transition probabilities. Furthermore, this study analyzes subsamples of the data set, conditional on the business cycle and the economic strength of a country, by using interaction effects. The Author of this study thereby verifies whether or how the transition matrices change by including interaction effects. He applies a latent variable approach, using an ordered probit model, to calculate the effects of different variables on the probabilities of rating changes.

1477 руб.
The Funniest Scenes in the World is a valuable tool that is badly needed in today’s fast-paced, competitive marketplace: a book of original scenes that are worthy of being performed for agents, managers, casting directors and network executives. A book of scenes that are worthy of being shot and broadcast on television and are formatted like proper scripts used by professional actors. Gunnar Rohrbacher is a writer, actor, director, producer and teacher who happens to also co-own Actors Comedy Studio in Los Angeles. ACS primarily teaches acting and audition technique for on-camera comedy; sitcoms, half- hours, dramedies, whatever term you like.Time and again, these scenes have grabbed the attention of our guest casting directors. They love them and are often curious where the actors found them. The format is pretty simple - scenes are organized into the following categories: male/female, female/ female, male/male and gender neutral. The gender neutral scenes are also age neutral. Thus, each traditional category is made larger by the additional scenes that most anyone can perform. In addition, the scenes were all envisioned for the screen rather than stage. Some of them have been shot and produced and are viewable as MiniComs on our website www.actorscomedystudio.com.Lastly, a lot of actors need reel footage but are reluctant to self-produce largely for fear of writing or lack of experience. The Fifty Funniest Scenes in the World will help solve that problem, too. If you want t...

Problemstellung:Die erste Rating-Beurteilung wurde Anfang des 20. Jahrhundert von John Moody im Kontext der ausgeprägten Anleihenfinanzierung der Eisenbahnunternehmungen zu Zeiten der fortwährenden Landerschließung auf dem amerikanischen Kontinent vollzogen. Seitdem entwickelte sich die von Moody gegründete Rating-Agentur, der "Moody's Investor Service" zu einer der einflussreichsten Rating-Agenturen, die in 100 Staaten über 143.000 Rating-Beurteilungen vorgenommen hat und heute etwa 700 Analysten beschäftigt.Neben dem Moody's Investor Service übernehmen auch zwei weitere international tätige Rating-Agenturen, "Standard and Poor's (S and P) Corporation" und "Fitch Investors Service" die Aufgabe der Rating-Beurteilung von Unternehmungen, Anleihen und Staaten. S and P und Moody's sind dabei insgesamt als die einflussreichsten Rating-Agenturen zu betrachten, da sie speziell auf dem amerikanischen Markt so gut wie alle Emittenten-Ratings vornehmen. In der Fachliteratur wird angesichts dieser Dominanz der beiden Rating-Agenturen häufig von einem Duopol bzw. von einem Oligopol, wenn man Fitch als dritte bedeutende Rating-Agentur hinzunimmt, gesprochen. Einem Wettbewerb sehen sich die Agenturen lediglich durch kleinere spezialisierte Nischenanbieter ausgesetzt.Den beiden Rating-Agenturen Moody's und S and P kann eine unbestrittene Machtposition in der Finanzwelt zugesprochen werden, da sie durch die von ihnen vorgenommenen Rating-Beurteilu...

Inhaltsangabe:Abstract: We discuss the main approaches to quantify the risk of losses arising from a defaulting counterparty to a financial transaction that have been developed over the last 25 years. Every existing method faces major problems in assessing the numerous and partly non-observable factors influencing credit risk. One shortcoming common to all methods is the classical normal assumption for interest rate changes and asset returns. Therefore we suggest the introduction of stable Paretian models to yield more realistic credit spreads.

Diploma Thesis from the year 2010 in the subject Economics - Statistics and Methods, grade: 1,3, University of Tubingen, language: English, abstract: Rating agencies play an important role on the capital markets; however, during the financial crisis 2007-2009 people began to question how good their assessments of credit quality really are. In my study, I empirically examine the effect of rating announcements from Standard & Poor's on the Credit Default Swap (CDS) Market. It contributes to the field of rating agencies' performance measurement. Based on Event Study Methodology and recent CDS data, I detect virtually no significant abnormal spreadchange at the announcement date neither for downgrades nor upgrades. However, the CDS show some anticipation prior to the event especially for downgradings. Considering the rating date, I find evidence for an asymmetric reaction where downgrades cause stronger movement in the spreads. As a result, it seems as if rating changes do not convey a great part of new information to the markets. At the same time, the significant anticipation indicates that the CDS market processes information more efficiently.

Every day there are big headlines in the newspapers reminding that the crisis has not ended yet. In the fallout from the financial crisis of 2008-2009, a debate arose with regard to the culpability of credit rating agencies (CRAs) in creating or contributing to the crisis. In recent years, CRAs have been criticized strongly. In particular politicians and the public have been upset by the CRA's steady downgrading of European sovereign debt. Since the European sovereign debt crisis emerged in 2009, more and more concerns about the enormous power possessed by the big CRAs have been expressed. Several years later, CRA's reliability and performance are still being questioned. Increasing regulatory efforts addressing the credit rating industry not only in the US but also in the EU resulted from the financial meltdown, as CRAs were said to have played a central role. This book deals with the regulation of CRAs and addresses the following research question: What is the status quo of current regulatory regimes in the EU and in the US and what are its implications for rating agencies, investors and issuers?

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2010 in the subject Economics - International Economic Relations, grade: 2.0, University of Osnabrück, language: English, abstract: To understand the roots of the capital markets and the rating agencies I want to start this Bachelor Thesis with a historical development. With introduction of the Issuer Pays Model and the proclamation of so called NRSROs there is the starting point for a long time discussion within the credit rating industry. Then I want to introduce the case of Enron, a former energy conglomerate which has been wrongly rated by the rating agencies. I want to investigate if there are any parallels to the crisis of 2007. I also want to understand and show the reasons and the structure of the crisis of 2007. So I will introduce the Subprime market and structured finance, as these topics were probably the triggers for the crisis. The main part of my thesis is to find an explanation for the performance of the credit rating agencies. I use a theoretical model which stresses the complexity of assets. The model says that the more complex an asset is, the harder it is to rate for the agencies. In opposite to that I want to compare the results of the theoretical model with an empirical study. I want to investigate if the theoretical model gets the same result as the empirical approach or if there are huge differences. At last I want to introduce some solution proposals by myself and think about further approaches.

5989 руб.
Inhaltsangabe:Introduction: Reconstruction of real-world scenes from a set of multiple images is a topic in Computer Vision and 3D Computer Graphics with many interesting applications. There is a relation to Augmented and Mixed Reality (AR/MR), Computer-Supported Collaborative Work (CSCW), Computer-Aided industrial/architectural Design (CAD), modeling of the real-world (e.g. computer games, scenes/effects in movies), entertainment (e.g. 3D TV/Video) and recognition/analyzing of real-world characteristics by computer systems and robots. There exists a powerful algorithm theory for shape reconstruction from arbitrary viewpoints, called shape from photo-consistency. However, it is computationally expensive and hence can not be used with applications in the field of 3D video or CSCW as well as interactive 3D model creation. Attempts have been made to achieve real-time framerates using PC cluster systems. While these provide enough performance they are also expensive and less flexible. Approaches that use GPU hardware-acceleration on single workstations achieve interactive framerates for novel-view synthesis, but do not provide an explicit volumetric representation of the whole scene. The proposed approach shows the efforts in developing a GPU hardware-accelerated framework for obtaining the volumetric photo hull of a dynamic 3D scene as seen from multiple calibrated cameras. High performance is achieved by employing a shape from silhouette technique in advance to obtain a tight i...

Before the Crash. Early Video Game History

4827 руб.
Following the first appearance of arcade video games in 1971 and home video game systems in 1972, the commercial video game market was exuberant with fast-paced innovation and profit. New games, gaming systems, and technologies flooded into the market until around 1983, when sales of home game systems dropped, thousands of arcades closed, and major video game makers suffered steep losses or left the market altogether. In Before the Crash: Early Video Game History, editor Mark J. P. Wolf assembles essays that examine the fleeting golden age of video games, an era sometimes overlooked for older games’ lack of availability or their perceived "primitiveness" when compared to contemporary video games.In twelve chapters, contributors consider much of what was going on during the pre-crash era: arcade games, home game consoles, home computer games, handheld games, and even early online games. The technologies of early video games are investigated, as well as the cultural context of the early period—from aesthetic, economic, industrial, and legal perspectives. Since the video game industry and culture got their start and found their form in this era, these years shaped much of what video games would come to be. This volume of early history, then, not only helps readers to understand the pre-crash era, but also reveals much about the present state of the industry.Before the Crash will give readers a thorough overview of the early days of video games along with a sense of the o...

Belonging to the wider academic field of computer vision, video analytics has aroused a phenomenal surge of interest since the current millennium. Video analytics is intended to solve the problem of the incapability of exploiting video streams in real time for the purpose of detection or anticipation. It involves analyzing the videos using algorithms that detect and track objects of interest over time and that indicate the presence of events or suspect behavior involving these objects. The aims of this book are to highlight the operational attempts of video analytics, to identify possible driving forces behind potential evolutions in years to come, and above all to present the state of the art and the technological hurdles which have yet to be overcome. The need for video surveillance is introduced through two major applications (the security of rail transportation systems and a posteriori investigation). The characteristics of the videos considered are presented through the cameras which enable capture and the compression methods which allow us to transport and store them. Technical topics are then discussed – the analysis of objects of interest (detection, tracking and recognition), “high-level” video analysis, which aims to give a semantic interpretation of the observed scene (events, behaviors, types of content). The book concludes with the problem of performance evaluation.
