Lab Introduction

Video content-based retrieval is indispensable to access necessary information from broadcast videos or video archives in the internet. We are addressing video content-based retrieval for large-scale video archives via automatic extraction of video content information using video semantic analysis. This requires to solve so-called the bridging the semantic gap, which is known to be very challenging task, and we are tackling this issue using several techniques including image analysis, machine learning, and information retrieval.
