Boundary Error Analysis and Categorization in the TRECVID News Story Segmentation Task



Joaquim F. Arlandis, Paul D. Over, Wessel Kraaij


In this paper, an error analysis based on boundary error popularity including semantic boundary categorization is applied in the context of the news story segmentation task from TRECVID, Clusters of systems were defined based on the input resources they used including video, audio and automatic speech recognition. A cross-popularity specific index was used to measure boundary error popularity across cluster, which allowed goal-driven selection of boundaries to be categorized. A wide set of boundaries was viewed and a summary of the error types is presented. this framework allowed drawing conclusions about the behavior of resource-based clusters in the context of news story segmentation.
