- Recent advances in real-world media search technology and future -
Masaya Murata, Media Information Laboratory
We are working on a media search task called instance search,
which is to search for a specific object appearing in stored
images or videos. It is assumed that the query specifying the
object is given only as a set of images, and any metadata such as
the associated text is unavailable. We think it an important task
because the instance search technology will play a key role to
bridge the gap between the real world and the digital world such
as WWW. In this talk, I will first review a research history
related to the instance search, and then introduce our work.
I will also give some perspectives on future directions.
