MUSCLE International Workshop on Computational Intelligence for Multimedia Understanding
Multimedia understanding is an important part of many intelligent
applications in our social life, be it in our households, or in commercial, industrial,
service, and scientific environments. Analyzing raw data to provide them with semantics
is essential to exploit their full potential and help us managing our everyday tasks.
Nowadays, raw data normally come from a host of different sensors and other sources, and
are different in nature, format, reliability and information content. Multimodal and cross-modal
analysis are the only ways to use them at their best. Besides data analysis, this problem is also relevant to data
description intended to help storage and mining. Interoperability and exchangeability of heterogeneous and
distributed data is a need for any practical application. Semantics is information at the highest level, and
inferring it from raw data (that is, from information at the lowest level) entails exploiting both data
and prior information to extract structure and meaning. Computation, machine learning, statistical and Bayesian methods
are tools to achieve this goal at various levels.
The Workshop will take place in:
Pisa - Italy
