TOPICAL ISSUE: Multimedia Structuring and Understanding by Automatic Recognition

    ◄ Back to journal  


Goffredo Maria Haus, Università degli Studi di Milano, Italy


Video, images, audio, and other spatial/timed signals, together with related symbolic information (metadata and others), generally consist in non-organized data. Automatic tagging of recognized space/time features is a way to structure these kinds of information. Improvements in automatic recognition are needed both to enrich multimedia understanding and to ease its structuring. To this end, relevant topics include, but are not limited to:

  • visual object identification and localization
  • audio object identification and synchronization
  • multi-layer structuring and indexing of multimedia objects
  • integration of metadata and multimedia indexing
  • modeling semantic multimedia
  • multimedia ontologies
  • multimedia information understanding
