Abstract

WWW Video Search Engines have become increasingly commonplace within the last few years and at the same time video retrieval research has been receiving more attention with the annual TRECVid series of workshops. In this paper we evaluate methods of relevance feedback for video search engines operating over TV news data. We show for both video shots and TV news stories, that an optimal number of terms can be identified to compose a new query for feedback and that in most cases; the number of documents employed for feedback does not have a great effect on these optimal numbers of terms.

Keywords

Relevance Feedback News Story Video Retrieval Video Shot Video Search 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
