Invited talk at the Ninth International Conference on Image Processing Theory, Tools and Applications IPTA 2019 (http://www.ipta-conference.com/ipta19/)
Crises and natural disasters are unwelcome, but also unavoidable features of modern society, affecting more communities than ever. Visual information analysis plays an important role in efficient pre-event (e.g. risk modeling), during the event (response) and post-event (recovery) emergency situation management. This talk will describe the potential role of visual information sources including satellite images, surveillance and traffic cameras, social multimedia and aerial video in applications such as floods, fires, and oil spills. Multimodal and fusion techniques will be presented combining satellite and social data and how deep neural networks can be applied in this domain. The talks will include demos and results from the relevant BeAware and EOPEN projects and from our participation in the 2018 Multimedia Satellite Task of the MediaEval Benchmarking Initiative.
