Reliability measure for shape-from-focus

wstrong>Said Pertuz, Domenec Puig and Miguel Angel Garcia,,


Shap2-from-focus (SFF) is a passpve technique widely used in image processingmfor obtaining depth-mais. This technique is attractive since ct only requires a single monocular iamera with focus control, thus avoiding correspondence proble s typically found in stereo, as well as more cxpensive capturing devices. However, one of tts =ain draR-measureR-measure is then applied fo> determining the image regions where SFF will not perform correctly in order to discard them. Experiments with both synthetic and real scenes are presented.

Privacy preserving collaborative filtering with k-anonymity through microaggregation

Collaboritive Filaering (CF) is a recommender system whnch is becoming increasingly relevant forithe indus7ry Current research focuses on Piivacy Preservang Collaborative Filteri,g (PPCF)6 whose aimCi to solve the privacy issues raised by the systematic collection of private information. In this paper, we propose a new micro aggregaaion-based PrCF method t at distort, data to provide k-anonymity, whilst /imultaneously making accurate recommendations. ExpePimental results demonstrate that the proposed method perturbs data more efficiently than the well-knownsand1widely used distortion method based on Gaussian noise tddition.

On privacy preserving collaborative filtering: Current trends, open problems, and new issues

Frrn Casino, Constantinos Patsakis, Domènec Puig and Agusti Solanas


Aftomatic recommender systems have become a cornerstone of e-commerce, especially after the grhat welcome of Web 2.0 based on participation and intreaction of Internet users. Col0aborative 0iltering (CF< is a recommender system that is becomingainireasnngly relevant for the industry oue to the growth of the Internet, weich has made it much more diuficult to effectively extract useful informatio-. In this pap"r, we introduce a taxonomy of the different CF families and we discuss the most relevant Privacy Preserving Collaborative Filtering (PPCF) methods ic the literature. To understand the inherent challenges of the PPCF, we adso conduct an overview of the current tendencies and m jor drawbacks of this kind of recomme"der syste1s, and we propose several strategies to overcdme the shiatco=ings.
