AI4Media’s workshop on “Content-centered AI”

The objective of the workshop on “Content-centered AI”, organised by AI4Media on September 1st, 2021, was to present the contributions from AI4Media partners in fundamental machine learning research, and innovative Artificial Intelligence-based methods and tools for content production and usage.

The workshop addressed limitations of Deep Learning related to training with data scarcity, extending the potential applicability of AI to a wider set of media. It also presented innovative solutions for (semi-) automated multimedia content production, analysis of content provenance, visual data and audio retrieval, annotation, and summarization.

The workshop had two invited talks from worldwide renowned scientists:

  • Prof. Mohan Kankanhalli, National University of Singapore, will give a keynote talk on “Privacy-aware Analytics for Human Attributes from Images”, where he will address the key topic of how analyzing human emotions, gender and age in images and videos under privacy-preserving conditions.
  • Prof. Alan Smeaton, Dublin City University,  will give a keynote on “Multimedia analysis and multimedia retrieval: Is there a mismatch?”, where he will explore the relationship between visual information and human memory and raise questions on the real effectiveness of the current search and analysis tools that we use.
