Semantic Video Search Indexing and Concept Detection

Semantic video indexing is the process of automatically detecting the presence of semantic concepts in a video stream. This incredible session (my personal favorite), titled, "Semantic Video indexing," was presented at the 2008 Video Search Summit and was delivered by Dr Marcel Worring, Head of Research for the MediaMill University of Amsterdam.

In this session, Marcel talks about the possibilities that exist with semantic video indexing and the idea that perhaps one day, semantic video search could one day be the ideal model for video discovery.

Of course, semantic indexing of online video content is a very diffulult problem to solve for. Marcel discusses the 2 problems that exist, namely, the Semantic Gap, and the Sensory Gap. He then takes you through an incredible video where he demonstrates video visuals of the Semantic Pathfinder Algorithm.
