Stefan Rueger of KMi returned from spending a week in Padua, where he taught 170 delegates at the European Summer School in Information Retrieval. ESSIR is a biennial event to provide quality teaching of advanced information retrieval topics to an audience of researchers and research students. The summer school consisted of a week filled with lectures, seminars and satellite events involving invited lecturers, who are recognized experts in the field. Rueger's lecture examined the challenges and opportunities of Multimedia Information Retrieval and corresponding search engine applications: How to find multimedia by fragments, examples and excerpts? How to hum a tune to find the song? How to use a photo of a building or statue to find its entry in a database? The lecture conveyed the basic techniques of multimedia retrieval in terms of automated processing and machine learning, and shone some light at the border area of best practice and cutting edge research.
