Special Issue Information

Dear colleagues,

Deep learning has become one of the most successful research topics in various fields, such as artificial intelligence, internet of things, and multimedia processing. Thanks to the continuously increasing processing and sensing power of electronic devices, deep learning techniques can now be practically applied in many domains such as automotive, education, and manufacturing. Embedded multimedia processing technologies are applied to DSP processors, FPGA, and GPU devices in order to achieve edge computing.

In this Special Issue on “Applied Deep Learning and Multimedia Electronics”, we invite authors to submit original research articles and review articles related to applied deep learning technologies in all kinds of fields and technologies of deep learning in multimedia processing. We are particularly interested in presenting emerging technologies related to deep learning and multimedia electronics that may have a significant impact on this research field. We are open to papers addressing a broad range of topics, from foundational topics regarding theoretical issues of multimedia processing to novel algorithms improving deep learning problems, advanced and technological systems for interesting applications, and innovative approaches in edge computing. Topics of interest for this Special Issue include but are not limited to the following:

  • Machine learning and deep learning for multimedia processing;
  • Deep network algorithms and architectures for multi-modal data;
  • Deep learning algorithms for clustering and classification;
  • Deep learning algorithms for segmentation and data annotation;
  • Multimedia content analysis and recommendation;
  • Embedded multimedia applications for edge computing;
  • Deep learning-based cross-disciplinary applications such as agriculture, education, healthcare, smart factory, etc.;
  • Novel applications in robotic vision, AIoT, intelligent consumer electronics, etc.;
  • System and software architecture of AI-based systems.

Rapid developments in motion media technology have prompted the dessert industry to incorporate both motion multimedia and social media into their marketing strategies. Modern consumption patterns have shifted dramatically toward motion multimedia, with data searching and cost-related decision-making gradually becoming a new type of consumption experience. As a result, the effective application of motion multimedia and computational thinking has become a critical skill in culinary education, as it improves students’ learning outcomes and enables them to enter the workforce with a practical modern skill. This study examines the learning outcomes of Chinese Culture University students enrolled in a dessert-making course that experimentally incorporated motion media and computational thinking into its curriculum. The results show that this approach significantly enhances students’ learning outcomes, especially in terms of creativity and teamwork, both of which are critical in dessert-making. This study makes a strong contribution to the literature by demonstrating that motion multimedia-based teaching methods and computational thinking boost learning outcomes in dessert-making education.

This paper presents a framework that can automatically analyze the images and comments in user-uploaded location databases. The proposed framework integrates image processing and natural language processing techniques to perform scene classification, data cleaning, and comment summarization so that the cluttered information in user-uploaded databases can be presented in an organized way to users. For scene classification, RGB image features, segmentation features, and the features of discriminative objects are fused with an attention module to improve classification accuracy. For data cleaning, incorrect images are detected using a multilevel feature extractor and a multiresolution distance calculation scheme. Finally, a comment summarization scheme is proposed to overcome the problems of unstructured sentences and the improper usage of punctuation marks, which are commonly found in customer reviews. To validate the proposed framework, a system that can classify and organize scenes and comments for hotels is implemented and evaluated. Comparisons with existing related studies are also performed. The experimental results validate the effectiveness and superiority of the proposed framework. Full article

Acne is a skin issue that plagues many young people and adults. Even if it is cured, it leaves acne spots or acne scars, which drives many individuals to use skincare products or undertake medical treatment. On the contrary, the use of inappropriate skincare products can exacerbate the condition of the skin. In view of this, this work proposes the use of computer vision (CV) technology to realize a new business model of facial skincare products. The overall framework is composed of a finger vein identification system, skincare products’ recommendation system, and electronic payment system. A finger vein identification system is used as identity verification and personalized service. A skincare products’ recommendation system provides consumers with professional skin analysis through skin type classification and acne detection to recommend skincare products that finally improve skin issues of consumers. An electronic payment system provides a variety of checkout methods, and the system will check out by finger-vein connections according to membership information. Experimental results showed that the equal error rate (EER) comparison of the FV-USM public database on the finger-vein system was the lowest and the response time was the shortest. Additionally, the comparison of the skin type classification accuracy was the highest. Full article
