    Guest lecture
    Exactum C124

    In this talk I will describe how we tackled the problem of indexing a text T with a light data structure in order to support fast approximate search of patterns P under the Hamming distance. Our strategy employs two classes of hash functions - dubbed Hamming-aware and de Bruijn - to drastically reduce search space and memory footprint of the index, respectively. Let m=|P|, n=|T|, σ be the alphabet size, and k be...

  • Multimedia Indexing at EURECOM

    Prof. Bernard Merialdo, EURECOM Institute, France


    In this talk, I will make a short presentation of EURECOM and the activities of the Multimedia Department. Then, I will focus on two recent Multimedia Indexing projects on Multimedia Indexing, one on Video Summarization, one on Semantic Concept Indexing. For Video Summarization, we have introduced new techniques for summarization, and proposed an original approach for evaluation. For Semantic...

    Doctoral dissertation
    T-building (Konemiehentie 2), lecture hall T2, Otaniemi campus

    The inference of differences between samples is a fundamental problem in computational biology and many other sciences. Hypothesis about a complex system can be studied via a controlled experiment. The design of the controlled experiment sets the conditions, or covariates, for the system in such a way that their effect on the system can be studied through independent...
