Text Mining for Automatic Image Tagging

Description: This paper introduces several extractive approaches for automatic image tagging, relying exclusively on information mined from texts. Through evaluations on two datasets, the authors show that their methods exceed competitive baselines by a large margin, and compare favorably with the state-of-the-art that uses both textual and image features.

Anchor Nodes Placement for Effective Passive Localization

Description: This paper discusses anchor nodes placement for effective passive localization. The authors show that, for effective passive localization, the optimal placement of the anchor nodes is at the center of the network in such a way that no three anchor nodes share linearity.
