You ever wondered how to make a visual search in a video? You would like to look for a particular person, a well-known politician or a person of contemporary history? You need to find a particular object such as a car, a house or a building? If you currently want to make these kinds of searches on your video collection, you may have a hard time. Use AXES!
When: 22 – 25 October 2014
Where: Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Tired of prolonged searches and fast forwarding while looking for the right video segment? You want to be able to find variations of a certain image? Use novel search techniques like speech recognition, face detection and similarity search in order to quickly find what you are looking for!
The clip shows the vision of AXES. A key aspect of this EU project is to detect and extract visual data such as faces, objects, places and events.
