8th Video Browser Showdown (VBS) at MMM2019 in Thessaloniki

,

Last week, Klaus Schoeffmann co-organized the 8th Video Browser Showdown (VBS) at MMM2019 in Thessaloniki, and it was a great success. For the first time they used the V3C1 dataset (Part 1 of the Vimeo Creative Commons Collection), which consists of 7475 video files that amount for about 1000 hours of content. The six participating teams (including an ITEC team with Andreas Leibetseder) could solve all visual and textual Known-Item Search (KIS) tasks, as well as all Ad-Hoc Video Search (AVS) tasks within a short amount of time! The teams have clearly demonstrated that their sophisticated video retrieval systems are very powerful and allow fast and effective content-based search in videos. They look forward to the next VBS in January 2020 in Daejeon, Korea at MMM2020! More information here: www.VideoBrowserShowdown.org
