A Multi-Pronged Approach to Improving Semantic Extraction of News Video
In this paper we describe a multi-strategy approach to improving semantic extraction from news video. Experiments show the value of careful parameter tuning, exploiting multiple feature sets and multilingual linguistic resources, applying text retrieval approaches for image features, and establishing synergy between multiple concepts through undirected graphical models. We present a discriminative learning framework called Multi-concept Discriminative Random Field (MDRF) for building probabilistic models of video semantic concept detectors by incorporating related concepts as well as the low-level observations. The model exploits the power of discriminative graphical models to simultaneously capture the associations of concept with observed data and the interactions between related concepts. Compared with previous methods, this model not only captures the co-occurrence between concepts but also incorporates the raw data observations into a unified framework. We also describe an approxi...
