Exploiting Captions for Multimedia Data Mining / Chapter in Encyclopedia of Multimedia Technology and Networking

MetadataShow full item record
Captions are essential accompaniments to multimedia data objects as a way to facilitate their data mining. This article describes the kinds of possible captions and the task of recognizing them. It then discusses the forms of the caption-object relationship and the ways in which components of the two can be matched. Automatic generation of captions is also discussed. While no breakthroughs are expected on this subject, captioned multimedia will become increasingly important in future systems as increases in processing speeds enable it to be more easily used.
