AbstractThis is a series of seminars provided as a research overview on Multimedia Signal Processing. This short course is running over 2 sessions, 1 hour for each session on 16th and 23 Mar 2007.

This seminar is jointly hosted by NICTA/CSE UNSW.

Today, digital audiovisual applications are part of our everyday lives.
It is envisioned that powerful new and advanced applications and services become possible based on smart content analysis and description. Of prime importance is the extraction of semantics from images, speech, audio and video. Worldwide efforts concentrate on bridging the gap between low level descriptions and high level semantics. Will it be possible to design smart applications that automatically classify and filter media - to provide individual users with dedicated content? Will it possible to develop search engines or specific filters that use extracted descriptions to help users or agents search and navigate through large collections of data?
In my talk I will give an overview about work conducted at TU Berlin in this exciting and promising field.
