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
Prof. Radu Prodan coordinated EU H2020 Horizon project – ARTICONF (smART socIal media eCOsystem in a blockchaiN Federated environment) held its first kick-off meeting at Klagenfurt from January 8th – 10th 2019. The ARTICONF team comprising of international partners from Austria, Netherlands, UK, Macedonia, Portugal, Spain, and Norway pledged support to create a novel decentralized and trusted social media ecosystem. The international team with diverse expertise ranging from blockchain to digital sociology discussed the road map of the project over three years stipulated period and outlined innovative ways of contribution to European Union’s grand vision of Next Generation Internet (NGI) goals.
A new ITEC research project on Surgical Quality Assessment in Gynecologic Laparoscopy (SQUASH) – in collaboration with the Medical University of Vienna – has been approved by the FWF Austrian Science Fund. In this research project the team around Klaus Schöffmann will investigate how to improve the efficiency and feasibility of technical skill assessment by automatic video content analysis, i.e, by content-based video retrieval and current methods of machine learning/deep learning.

Informatiker und Mediziner arbeiten in einem fachübergreifenden Forschungsprojekt mit Informatikschwerpunkt zusammen, in dem Methoden zur automatischen Erkennung von relevanten zeitlichen Segmenten in Augenoperationsvideos entwickelt und evaluiert werden sollen. Hauptziel ist dabei die Modellierung von Relevanz hinsichtlich der Verwendung von Videosegmenten für medizinische Lehre, Forschung und Dokumentation. Relevanzmodelle werden durch maschinelle Lernverfahren automatisch gelernt, wobei von Chirurgen annotierte Operationsvideos als Trainingsdaten dienen. Read more
