Project: Sports Video Analysis

Motivation & Application

Our ultimate goal is to bridge the gap between low-level audio-visual features and high-level semantics. Here we are trying to incorporate generic audio-visual features, domain-specific information into suitable reasoning schemes, and thus locate and extract interesting events.
We are focusing on automatic analysis of sports video, and our current test dataset are soccer videos.
Potential Applications
Target users: sports fans, sports professionals, as well as common TV audience.
(1) Interactive browsing
(2) Search and indexing
(3) Skimming
This is especially useful under context of versatile and pervasive applications of digital video, with the amount of information increasing several order of magnitude faster than possible viewing time.
