Attended the International Workshop on Image Analysis for Multimedia Interactive Services a.k.a. WIAMIS 2009. The PetaMedia task force organized a special session to showcase topics related to combining multimedia content analysis with user contributed information and social network structure. We presented some initial work on combining speech-based indexing features with low level visual information for improved video retrieval.
I divide my time between Radboud University Nijmegen and Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands. My research focuses on multimedia retrieval techniques that exploit speech and language and focus on human interpretations of meaning. I am particularly interested in internet video, in networked communities, and crowdsourcing techniques. Lately, I've been noticing how difficult it is to imagine life without search.
