How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

The very idea of hiring humans to avoid the indiscriminate spread of inappropriate sensitive content online (e.g., child pornography and violence) is daunting. The inherent data deluge and the tediousness of the task call for more adequate approaches, and set the stage for computer-aided methods. If running in the background, such methods could rea...
Automatically detecting violence in videos is paramount for enforcing the law and providing the society with better policies for safer public places. In addition, it may be essential for protecting minors from accessing inappropriate contents on-line, and for helping parents choose suitable movie titles for their children. However, this is an open...
Recent literature has explored automated pornographic detection — a bold move to replace humans in the tedious task of moderating online content. Unfortunately, on scenes with high skin exposure, such as people sunbathing and wrestling, the state of the art can have many false alarms. This paper is based on the premise that incorporating motion inf...
As web technologies and social networks become part of the general public's life, the problem of automatically detecting pornography is into every parent's mind — nobody feels completely safe when their children go online. In this paper, we focus on video-pornography classification, a hard problem in which traditional methods often employ still-ima...
Most machine learning systems for binary classification are trained using algorithms that maximize the accuracy and assume that false positives and false negatives are equally bad. However, in many applications, these two types of errors may have very different costs. In this paper, we consider the problem of controlling the false positive rate on...
This paper presents the RECOD approaches used in the MediaEval 2014 Violent Scenes Detection task. Our system is based on the combination of visual, audio, and text features. We also evaluate the performance of a convolutional network as a feature extractor. We combined those features using a fusion scheme. We participated in the main and the gener...
