Periodic Report - MIESON (Multimedia information extraction from social networks)

Project ID: 254370
Funded under: FP7-PEOPLE


This is the first periodic report for the MIESON project which received funding under the European Commission (EC)'s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). MIESON proposed a research framework focused on developing methodologies for the effective combination of content and context-based features in order to improve our understanding of multimedia content and provide enhanced methods to access it. It defined a sample application relevant to the multimedia research community as a case study for the proposed methodology: aesthetics modelling.

Three important results have been derived from this work. Firstly, a methodological approach was proposed that leverages unstructured contextual information from user generated content (specifically, user comments) for revealing domain knowledge, secondly, a large-scale evaluation of the performance of content and context-based features for modelling the aesthetic value of photographs and thirdly, a method to leverage aesthetic models to enhance image search results by incorporating aesthetics in the ranking model.

The report covers the objectives of each work package that the project is divided into and goes on with a summary of the progress achieved towards the fulfilment of the objectives set. It also provides a summary of training and transfer of knowledge activities.
