Upcoming Events

Multimedia COMMONS Workshop at ACM Multimedia 2016

Join us in October 2016 to talk about innovative research using the YFCC100M and the Multimedia Commons dataset — and how we can best leverage this massive resource in future for the benefit of the multimedia research community. This year’s workshop theme will be Datasets, Evaluation, and Reproducibility, reflecting the potential of the new data to suggest new perspectives on evaluation and reproducible research. We will also discuss available tools and resources, plan future annotations and other expansions, and provide a broad forum for users of the Multimedia Commons to present their work.

Also at ACM Multimedia 2016

AudioNet Jam Session: ICSI is planning a new corpus of audio annotations on the YFCC100M videos. Join the coordinators to give us input on how AudioNet should best be designed to support cutting-edge research.
