Multimedia Analytics: Perspectives, Tools and Applications (SS2:MAPTA)

 

Multimedia analytics is a new and exciting research area that combines techniques from multimedia analysis, visual analytics, and data management, with a focus on creating systems for analyzing large-scale multimedia collections. The size and complexity of media collections is ever increasing, as is the desire to harvest useful information from these collections, with expected impacts ranging from the advancement of science to increased company profits. Indeed, multimedia analytics sees potential applications in diverse fields, including data journalism, urban computing, digital heritage, healthcare, digital forensics, natural sciences, and social media. We therefore consider multimedia analytics to be one of the core research challenges of the multimedia research community.
