Title: Recent progress on video captioning.
Abstract: Video captioning is an automated collection of natural language phrases that explains the contents in video frames. Because of the extraordinary performance of deep learning in the field of computer vision and natural language processing in recent years, research in this field has been exponentially increased in the last few years. Numerous approaches, datasets, and measurement metrics have been introduced. In this talk, we will report our progress in this field.
Professor Ruili Wang received the Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from Dublin City University, Dublin, Ireland. He is currently a Professor of Artificial Intelligence and Chair of Research in the School of Natural and Computational Sciences, Massey University, Auckland, New Zealand. He is the Director of the Centre of Language and Speech Processing. His current research interests include speech processing, language processing, video processing, data mining, and intelligent systems. Professor Wang serves as an Associate Editor (or a member of the editorial boards) for international journals, such as the journals of IEEE Transactions on Emerging Topics in Computational Intelligence, Applied Soft Computing, Neurocomputing, Knowledge and Information Systems. He was a recipient of a prestigious research grant in New Zealand (i.e., the Marsden Fund) and the New Zealand-Singapore Data Science Research Programme Fund ($3 million).
