Academic Visitor

I am working on automatic detection of multi-object interactions from surveillance videos and sport videos, so as to provide clues for event detection and behavoral analysis. The above photo is for collecting subjective evaluation data with eye-trackers.

Subjective Evaluation Test!


* Note that the main purpose of this subjective evaluation is to investigate the relevance of the proposed system in personalizing video summaries for satisfying various user preferences. Due to the limitation of network bandwidth, the videos are encoded in low bitrates. Hence, the video quality itself should be excluded from the following subjective evaluation of system performance.
* ユーザーの好みに応じて、個人化ビデオ内容を提供する能力を検証することが、本実験の目的です。ネット上でスムースにビデオを転送するため、低いビットレートで全ての映像を圧縮しました。それゆえ、画像品質はかなり低下しました。評価する際には、画質の代わりに、語義上でビデオ内容とユーザーの要求との一致性に着目し、本システムの性能を評価してください。
