TRECVID: Benchmarking content based video retrieval technology

The TREC Video Retrieval Evaluation (TRECVID) is an annual benchmarking activity for content based video retrieval techniques. The goal of TRECVID is to promote progress in content-based exploitation of digital video via open, metrics-based evaluation. Over the last 9 years TRECVID has yielded a better understanding of how systems can effectively accomplish such processing and how one can reliably benchmark their perfor- mance. The presentation will contain an overview of what has been achieved, the spectrum of challenges ahead and strategies to move forward as a community.
