Audio/video analysis technology developers/providers/researchers are invited to test and benchmark their algorithms and furthermore to develop the necessary plug-ins for these to communicate with the open VICTORIA Video Analysis Platform (VAP) on VICTORIA datasets.
The VAP is an open and flexible platform designed to support analytic tools from third parties with varied features. This new platform will be available in a cloud server (Docker image) during the challenge for testing and integration.
The Analytics Contest is divided into two challenges: • The first challenge will invite the developers to propose detection and tracking of persons or cars as well as audio event detection algorithms, to be integrated as plug-ins into the VAP. The algorithms performances could also be evaluated using datasets that contain ground truth information allowing relevant test conditions. • The second challenge will invite the developers to propose the most innovative functionality related to post-event crimes and terrorism acts to be integrated into the VAP.
At the end of the analytics contest, prizes will reward best challengers: first plugins successfully integrated into the VAP, most innovative plugins implemented into the VAP, best algorithms scores on dedicated challenges (persons/cars detection and tracking, audio detection)… The rewarded challengers will also be given visibility on a dedicated webpage of the project's public website.
