Part of the The International Series in Video Computing book series (VICO, volume 2)


In this chapter we define visual events, present a framework for the detection of visual events and discuss the framework’s components. We describe how we obtain rich image descriptions based on color, texture, and motion measures, and how they are combined in a fat, flat hierarchy to infer object, shot, and event information. Throughout this chapter we will indicate the scope of the discussion by highlighting the relevant component within the framework.
