The Multimodal Information Group's (MIG) video analytics program includes several activities contributing to the development of technologies that extract information from video streams through systematic, targeted annual evaluations and metrology advances. Two currently active evaluations are: Activities in Extended Video (ActEV), and the Nimble Challenge Evaluation for Media Forensics.
There has been a huge growth in video analytics research over the past decade. The MIG group saw this as an opportunity to apply our group's three decades of knowledge in language content recognition and extraction metrology to video analytics research. This includes defining performance metrics, building real-world data sets, and identifying key component technologies that must be developed to build a video analytics pipeline from the pixel level to the content understanding level.
