WWW 2012 - The CUbRIK Project

  1. 1. The CUbRIK Project P.Fraternali, M.Tagliasacchi, D.Martinenghi, A.Bozzon, I.Catallo, E.Ciceri, F.Nucci, V.Croce, I.S.Altingovde, W.Siberski08/05/2012 CUbRIK Presentation 0
  2. 2. The CUbRIK project  36 month large-scale integrating project  partially funded by the European Commission’s 7th Framework ICT Programme for Research and Technological Development  08/05/2012 CUbRIK Presentation 1
  3. 3. Objectives  The technical goal of CUbRIK is to build an open search platform grounded on four objectives:  Advance the architecture of multimedia search  Place humans in the loop  Open the search box  Start up a search business ecosystem 08/05/2012 CUbRIK Presentation 2
  4. 4. Objective: Advance thearchitecture of multimedia search  Multimedia search: coordinated result of three main processes:  Content processing: acquisition, analysis, indexing and knowledge extraction from multimedia content  Query processing: derivation of an information need from a user and production of a sensible response  Feedback processing: quality feedback on the appropriateness of search results 08/05/2012 CUbRIK Presentation 3
  5. 5. Objective: Advance thearchitecture of multimedia search  Objective:  Content processing, query processing and feedback processing phases will be implemented by means of independent components  Components are organized in pipelines  Each application defines ad-hoc pipelines that provide unique multimedia search capabilities in that scenario 08/05/2012 CUbRIK Presentation 4
  6. 6. Objective: Humans in the loop  Problem: the uncertainty of analysis algorithms leads to low confidence results and conflicting opinions on automatically extracted features  Solution: humans have superior capacity for understanding the content of audiovisual material  State of the art: humans replace automatic feature extraction processes (human annotations)  Our contribution: integration of human judgment and algorithms  Goal: improve the performance of multimedia content processing 5
