Measuring novelty and redundancy with multiple modalities in cross-lingual broadcast news
News videos from different channels, languages are broadcast everyday, which provide abundant information for users. To effectively search, retrieve, browse and track news stories, news story similarity plays a critical role in assessing the novelty and redundancy among news stories. In this paper, we explore different measures of novelty and redundancy detection for cross-lingual news stories. A news story is represented by multimodal features which include a sequence of keyframes in the visual track, and a set of words and named entities extracted from speech transcript in the audio track. Vector space models and language models on individual features (text, named entities and keyframes) are constructed to compare the similarity among stories. Furthermore, multiple modalities are further fused to improve the performance. Experiments on the TRECVID-2005 cross-lingual news video corpus showed that modalities and measures demonstrate variant performance for novelty and redundancy detec...
