Refereed Conference Meeting Proceeding
In this paper we describe our participation in the semantic indexing (SIN) and interactive surveil- lance event detection (SED) tasks at TRECVid 2013 [11]. Our work was motivated by the goals of the EU SAVASA project (Standards-based Approach to Video Archive Search and Analysis) which supports search over multiple video archives. Our aims were: to assess a standard object detection methodology (SIN); evaluate contrasting runs in automatic event detection (SED) and deploy a distributed, cloud-based search interface for the interactive component of the SED task. Results from the SIN task, underlying retrospective classifiers for the surveillance event detection and a discussion of the contrasting aims of the SAVASA user interface compared with the TRECVid task requirements are presented.
