Harmonium Models for Video Classification
: Accurate and efficient video classification demands the fusion of multimodal information and the use of intermediate representations. Combining the two ideas into one framework, we propose a series of probabilistic models for video representation and classification using intermediate semantic representations derived from multimodal features of video. On the basis of a class of bipartite undirected graphical models named harmonium, we propose dual-wing harmonium (DWH) model that represents video shots as latent semantic topics derived by jointly modeling the transcript keywords and color-histogram features of the data. Our family-of-harmonium (FoH) and hierarchical harmonium (HH) model extends DWH by introducing variables representing category labels of data, which allows data representation and classification to be performed in the same model. Our models are among the few attempts of using undirected graphical models for representing and classifying video data. Experiments on a bench...
