VECG Seminar: Dr Bryan Russell

Video Recognition at Adobe

Dr Bryan Russell, Research scientist, Adobe Research, Creative Technologies Lab

13th December 2016 


In this talk I will describe ongoing efforts in video recognition at Adobe.  Video presents additional challenges over recognition in still images.  Example challenges include the sheer volume of data, lack of annotated data across time, and presence of action categories where motion and appearance cues are critical.  I’ll describe work that addresses the issue of visual representation in video and its intersection with natural language.
