This innovative textbook presents current techniques in computing and communication, showcasing a holistic approach to multimedia computing that uses heterogeneous data sources —similar to how humans understand and integrate information through the perspective of our five senses. The authors describe fundamental properties and algorithms, relating these to emerging applications that use multifarious information sources.
Multimedia Computing and this companion website aim to enable students, teachers, and researchers to gain a unified overview of the multimedia field, so they can collaborate with people that work on different types of data. On this website, you will therefore find a myriad of multimedia resources, along with materials intended to help readers and teachers get the most out of the textbook.
