题 目：Semantic Multimedia Content Analysis and Understanding
报告人：Prof. Jinchang Ren, University of Strathclyde
In this talk, summarized works in several interesting topics on semantic multimedia content analysis and understanding will be reported. These include semantic video content analysis, image analysis, fusion and recognition, motion estimation and image registration, content based video annotation, summarisation and retrieval, archive video restoration, visual surveillance and 3D vision as well as saliency detection. In addition to the reported progress, intensive discussions on future R&D will be focused.
