Speech Title: Multi-modality multimedia information analysis and compression

Abstract: With the rapid growth of multimedia applications and services, semantic information, such as objects' motion, action, & property, is of increasing importance in many emerging multimedia applications whose data has become extremely "big". This imposes a huge demand for the efficient extraction and compression of semantic information. In this talk, I will introduce our works on multi-modality multimedia information analysis and compression. Firstly, I will introduce our work on object activity and interaction recognition. We re-model the existing action detection architectures, and develop a long-term parsing & short-term sampling structure. Secondly, we will introduce our work on multi-modality multimedia analysis, which aims to accurately localize and analyze objects based on the joint analysis between audio and video streams. Thirdly I will also present our new work on semantic information compression. We construct a new model to describe the spatial-temporal redundancies in semantic data, and design a new architecture that can compress more than 70% of the semantic data. Finally, I will give some industry application examples of our work.
