GPI Seminar Series: Horst Eidenberger

Prof. Horst Eidenberger, Multimedia Information Retrieval and Forensic Biometrics at the Interactive Media Systems Group  
Wednesday September 25th, 11:00 - 13:00, Seminar Room D5-007

The presentation will cover the following topics:

  1. A brief introduction to the Interactive Media Systems (IMS) group at the Vienna University of Technology. We do research in multimedia information retrieval, stereo matching and augmented reality.
  2. An overview over media retrieval at IMS: Major research topics are visual media description by local features, identifying adequate similarity models for classification, mixing audio and video in descriptions and classification, and outlier detection
  3. Details on what we do in visual media description by Gestalt-based local features. Currently, we apply our GIP detector for violence detection
  4. Our approach to the unification of similarity models for human-like and kernel-based classification of multimedia descriptions. We combine distance-based and predicate-based measures for the optimal separation of media clusters
  5. Selected forensic applications for media retrieval in the area of biometrics: voice identification and face recognition: What can be done? What can’t?
  6. A few words on the teaching situation at IMS and opportunities for master and PhD students
