Seminar abstract

Harvesting Heterogenous ​and Redundant Multimedia Data

Heng Tao Shen
University of Queensland

Abstract: In the era of big data, the amount of multimedia data has reached an unprecedented level and keeps growing exponentially. It has been shown that heterogenous multimedia data gathered from different sources in different media types can be often correlated and linked to the same knowledge. In this talk, we will discuss the phenomena of heterogeneity and redundancy of big multimedia data, followed by the emerging opportunities in related research communities. In particular, I will introduce some recent progress in several promising directions, including automatic media tagging, near-duplicate utilization, and scalable indexing methods to manage Web-scale multimedia data.
