2- Automatic understanding of media content

Please note that the job is no longer active!

Automatic classification of image and video content is of crucial relevance for next future computing systems in order to understand content semantics and perform automatic tagging of multimedia documents, as well as to grant retrieval by content from large and social datasets. The researcher will study innovative and effective solutions that will enable the representation of the intermediate level semantics, by exploiting the content features, their spatio-temporal relationships and the users’ characteristics. Developed approaches will be evaluated on publicly available datasets and compared with the state-of-the-art approaches
