Research items

  • DataHiding (watermarking)
    DataHiding technology allows users to embed invisible and inaudible messages into still images, video, and audio data. The embedded messages survive format conversion, signal processing, lossy compression and analog transmission.

  • Feature extraction and similarity search
    The feature extraction allows a system to automatically extract effective temporal/spatial features of digital content and search similar content stored in data base. The combination of watermarking and this technology will provide more effective access to objective content in increasing traffic of multimedia content, even if the content is watermarked or not.
