Course Project The course project is meant to give you an in depth understanding of some of the areas in multimedia technology. Since this is a broad field, there can be a variety interesting projects that can be done depending on your interests which can also extend to related and complementary topics that are taught in class. You are required to form groups of two or three students in class. I have often found that a large project can be successfully accomplished via collaboration. Additionally, working together to design and integrate code can be a rewarding exercise Accordingly, please form groups of two students and send the TA an email giving your group information. This time the class project will involve classification and querying of video audio content to find similar videos. This is considered a hard problem to solve for all general purpose media. But in this project, you will use specific criteria on a well defined set of video where these criteria should work. Thus, this project will make you 1) Understand media semantics and extract a few from the given videos 2) Organize the extracted semantic information in visual descriptors 3) Perform matching using these descriptors. This is a comprehensive project that will increase your fundamental understanding of video and get your hands dirty with using audio samples. Although we have not talked about multimedia databases so far, all related issues have been discussed in class. Projects will be due for a demonstration in the first week of May (date, time and venue to be decided normally it is the first Monday after the end term exam). If you are a remote student and have problems finding students to pair with, send me an email.

Project on building/querying a Multimedia Database In this project, you are required to build a multimedia database that is capable of indexing video-audio content based different semantic characteristics. You will formalize this problem by analyzing the video-audio files and extract descriptors based on certain semantics that are informative. The format and explanation of what a descriptor consists of is described below. Semantics for which you will need to extract descriptors include motion in video, audio intensities and one other of your choice eg color, scene changes
